Hoggard quits Nufarm

After more than half a century involved with Australian-listed chemical company Nufarm, chairman Kerry Hoggard has resigned.

In a brief statement today, the company announced Mr Hoggard was retiring immediately due to ill health.

The board was meeting late today to elect a new chairman with an announcement due prior to the market opening tomorrow.

Valued on the NBR Rich List last year at $80 million, Mr Hoggard was today resting at home after throat surgery.

A decade ago Mr Hoggard was accused by the Securities Commission of insider trading during his tenure as chairman of Fletcher Challenge.

The case against him was settled in 2002 without a court ruling.
