Following the announcement today from YouGov plc, confirming Steve Hatch is to join them as Chief Executive Officer from August 2023, the Board of Reach plc today announces that Steve Hatch has decided to step down from his role as Non-Executive Director of the Company from the close of the 2023 Annual General Meeting ("AGM"), which is to be held on Wednesday, 3 May 2023.


Nick Prettejohn, Chairman, said: "I would like to thank Steve for his commitment and outstanding contribution to the Board during his tenure as a Non-Executive Director."

The withdrawal of resolution number 7 does not otherwise affect the validity of the Notice of Meeting, the proxy form or any proxy votes already submitted on other proposed resolutions.
