Board Changes

PZ Cussons plc (“PZ Cussons” or the “Company”) announces today that Chris Davis, Group Chief Operating Officer, has indicated his intention to retire from the Board as a Director with effect from the Annual General Meeting on 27 September 2017 and he will not stand for re-election. His responsibilities will be assumed by the Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer and other members of the Company’s Executive Committee. 

Non-executive Director Ngozi Edozien will also retire from the Board with effect from the 2017 Annual General Meeting. She was appointed to the Board in January 2012 and her second three year term of office expires this year. 

Caroline Silver, Chair of PZ Cussons, said:

“The Board wishes to express its thanks to Chris, who will retire later this year, for the significant contribution which he has made to PZ Cussons over 24 years with the Company. Chris was Managing Director of our Australian business before being appointed to the Board in 2006. He took up his present role as Chief Operating Officer in 2013 and has played a leading role in the Company’s recent business transformation programme. After leaving the Company, Chris will be returning to his native Australia and, on behalf of the Board and the wider business, I would like to wish him a long and happy retirement.

We would also like to extend our thanks to Ngozi for the input and wise counsel which she has given during her six years on the Board, both in respect of Nigeria but also more broadly, given her extensive international business experience. We wish her well in the future and thank her for her commitment to PZ Cussons.”
