Commenting on the changes, CoST Chairman Chrik Poortman said: “we are pleased to welcome George and Per to the Board. Both were involved in the CoST pilot project and I have no doubt that they will strengthen our governance and help us to scale-up the programme. And we are indebted to Bob for his service to CoST.
