“While we will be sorry to see Breon leave, we are delighted to have appointed a candidate of Peter's calibre to succeed him.”

McGann went on to say that Corcoran was leaving behind a business that “continues to perform strongly, and that has the scale, technology platform, combination of brands and exceptional people to outperform its competitors.”
