British homebuilder Countryside non-executive chair to resign

(Reuters) - British homebuilder Countryside Partnerships said on Wednesday non-executive chair John Martin will resign from all his roles, effective immediately, and will be replaced by senior independent director Douglas Hurt.

The move comes a month after the company put itself up for sale, following pressure from shareholders after it turned down a $1.9-billion bid from San-Francisco based investor Inclusive Capital.
