New Board member welcomed

"On behalf of the Board, I am delighted to welcome Louise to the A.G. BARR Group. Louise’s HR and consumer goods background will undoubtedly strengthen the capability and experience of our Board as we grow and develop the Company. I am also pleased to confirm Julie Barr’s appointment as a Non-Executive Director. Julie brings a wealth of experience gained during almost 20 years with the business and will be an invaluable addition to the Board.”
Mark Allen, Chair of A.G. BARR p.l.c.

We are pleased to announce that Louise Smalley will join the AG Barr Board on 1 June 2023 as a Non-Executive Director.

Having had an exceptional career in a variety of HR positions, culminating in her role as Group HR Director and Executive Director at Whitbread PLC, Louise has a strong track record in the consumer space, having worked with brands such as Costa, Pizza Hut and Premier Inn.

Louise is currently a Non-Executive Director at DS Smith Plc, where she is a member of the Audit, Remuneration and Nomination Committees, and at Informa PLC, where she is Chair of the Remuneration Committee. Louise will take on the role of Remuneration Committee Chair in the early part of 2024 when David Ritchie’s tenure as Non-Executive Director and Remuneration Committee Chair draws to a close.

As previously communicated on 28 March 2023, and following shareholder approval at today’s Annual General Meeting (AGM), Julie Barr will join the A.G. BARR Board with immediate effect as a Non-Executive Director. As planned, Robin Barr resigned as Non-Executive Director of the Company with effect from the close of today’s AGM.

Note: For the purposes of the UK Corporate Governance Code, Julie Barr is not independent. No other information is required to be disclosed pursuant to Listing Rule
9.6.13R in relation to Julie Barr’s or Louise Smalley’s appointments as Non-Executive Directors of the Company.
