Sun World International has confirmed that Allen Vangelos, who took temporary charge of the company as its president and chief executive officer five months ago, will remain in the position on a permanent basis.

Mr Vangelos, who is also a member of Sun World’s board of managers, has served as the group’s interim president and CEO since January 2008.

“Sun World’s board and management team are delighted with Al’s decision to accept the position on a permanent basis,” board chairman Christopher Parker said in a statement.

The company said Mr Vangelos had brought a “professional, seasoned management approach” to Sun World.
