Appointment of Non-Executive Director

20 November 2020

Renold, a leading international supplier of industrial chains and related power transmission products, is pleased to announce the appointment of Andrew Magson to the Board as a Non-Executive Director with effect from 1 December 2020. Andrew will also be appointed to the Audit, Remuneration and Nomination Committees.

Andrew, aged 54, has significant experience in senior finance roles in multinational manufacturing businesses, most recently at The Alumasc Group plc where he was the Chief Financial Officer from 2006 to 2020. He qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 1992 with PwC before moving into industry at BPB Plc, where he became Group Financial Controller.

Andrew's appointment forms part of Renold's succession planning process for the Board. As previously announced, it is intended, that following Mark Harper's resignation as Chairman of the Company after the 2021 Annual General Meeting, David Landless will step down as Chair of Audit Committee to take up the post of Chairman of the Company. Subject to his re-election at the 2021 AGM, it is proposed that Andrew will then be appointed Chairman of the Audit Committee.

Mark Harper, Chairman of Renold plc commented:

"I am delighted to welcome Andrew to the Group and pleased that the Board succession plan is progressing smoothly. He has highly relevant manufacturing sector and board level financial experience, including pension scheme management, and he will be an invaluable addition to the Renold Board."
