Appointment of Non-Executive Director
Benchmark has appointed Kevin Quinn as a Non-Executive Director of the Company with immediate effect.
Kevin Quinn (56) has over 30 years of financial experience in international business and the biosciences industry, including with FTSE 100 companies. Kevin has for the past 11 years been Chief Financial Officer at Berendsen plc, the leading FTSE 250 European textile service business. Previously, Kevin held senior finance positions within biosciences group Amersham plc and before that was a partner with PricewaterhouseCoopers (Prague).
Kevin will Chair the Audit Committee and sit on the Remuneration Committee. He will stand for re-election by shareholders at the next Annual General Meeting.
Benchmark’s Chairman, Alex Hambro, commented:
“We are delighted to welcome Kevin to the Board of Benchmark. His skills and experience in large international companies will prove especially valuable as Benchmark continues to integrate and grow its global aquaculture offering, and his industry experience in biosciences is highly relevant.
Kevin is taking the position formerly held by Basil Brookes, who stepped down in July, and who we thank again for his exceptional contribution to the Board.”
