G4S plc UK DK : Directorate change

21 May 2013



G4S, the international secure outsourcing group, today announces that Nick Buckles will step down as CEO and retire from the company and as a director on 31 May 2013 and that he will be succeeded by Ashley Almanza, who will take up the role on 1 June.

In the extensive search for the new CFO which resulted in Mr Almanza's appointment to that role on 1 May 2013, the board sought candidates with the experience and capabilities which would enable them take on the CEO role as part of the group's succession planning processes. Following a process which considered both internal and external candidates to succeed Mr Buckles, the board has appointed Mr Almanza to the role.

Stuart Curl, the group's regional CFO for the UK, Ireland and Africa has been appointed acting CFO whilst a search for a new CFO is conducted.

G4S is also announcing today that Eddie Aston will join the group on 8 July to take up the new role of Chief Operating Officer. The creation of this new senior role is one of the actions announced by the group following the board review of the Olympic contract last year.  Mr Aston joins the group from DHL where he is currently CEO - Global Sectors.

Commenting on the changes John Connolly, chairman of G4S, said:

"Nick Buckles made a massive contribution to the group over a 28 year career. As CEO he led G4S in the creation of significant shareholder value following the merger of Securicor and Group 4 Falck - building the world's leading security company.  On behalf of the board and everyone at G4S, I thank Nick and wish him the very best of luck for the future.

The board is extremely pleased to have attracted Ashley Almanza to the group.  He brings a wealth of experience from working across international borders in complex businesses and we are confident he will provide strong strategic and operational leadership to the group.

We are also confident that in introducing Eddie Aston into the new COO role we will further strengthen our operating processes, including in the key area of risk management.

These senior management changes, together with the recently announced new board appointments, will position the company strongly as we pursue our strategic goals."

Ashley Almanza added:

"G4S is a great global business with enormous long term potential and I am looking forward to working with a highly experienced and capable management team as we take the business forward.  I am also delighted that we have strengthened the team with the appointment of Eddie Aston."
