IMI announces non-executive director change

IMI plc ('IMI' or 'the Group'), the specialist engineering group, announces that after nine years on the Board, Carl-Peter Forster will be stepping down as a non-executive director of IMI plc at the end of August 2021. Carl-Peter is the senior independent non-executive director (SID) and chair of the Remuneration Committee. 

Lord Smith of Kelvin, Chairman of IMI, commented:

"On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Carl-Peter for the tremendous contribution he has made during his long tenure as a non-executive director of IMI. He has been a fully engaged non-executive, always active in Board discussions and has been a great support as SID, as well as successfully concluding the development and shareholder approval of our 2021 directors' remuneration policy. I wish him all the best in his continuing non-executive career." 

Thomas Thune Andersen will become SID and Caroline Dowling will take the chair of the Remuneration Committee, both with effect from 1 September 2021. At the same time, Ajai Puri will join the Audit Committee.
