Stating the retirement is for Personal reasons, Santos noted on Friday that Martin has re-assessed his board responsibilities, which included the Santos board and his executive responsibilities at Prostar Capital.
Martin spent eight years on the board of Santos that reported a $506 million loss for the first half of the year, impacted by a new impairment charge of $690 million it flagged last week primarily against its stake in the GLNG.
