Oxford Nanopore Technologies: Spike Willcocks, Clive Brown, Tim Cowper

James (Spike) Willcocks, Clive Brown, and Tom Cowper are stepping down from the board of directors of Oxford Nanopore Technologies. While Brown, who was on the board for five years, is resigning as director immediately, Willcocks, who served for 18 years, and Cowper, who has been on the board for five years, are staying until the company's annual general meeting in June. Willcocks will remain chief strategy officer; Brown will retain his role as chief technology, innovation, and product officer; and Cowper will remain chief operating officer. All three will also continue to serve on the firm's operating committee. Oxford Nanopore said their resignations "are part of normal board evolution and in line with best practice governance."
