That would be a very bad idea since the CFO is a key part of the check and balance system to keep the CEO honest. 

I’m not staying or implying anything about anyone, but structurally and optically, the CEO should never also perform the role of CFO.

Mr Deesse and Mr Barret will work together between 1 July 2019 and 26 July 2019 and finalise the handing over process.

>> Replying to myself to make sure that all relevant information is shared fairly within this community: one of the board members has informed me off-list that nobody will take over the CFO role, and there will therefore not be a CFO while Mr Deesse takes the role of interim CEO.
