Appointment of Interim Group Chief Executive


The Board of SIG plc announces that Stuart Mitchell has stepped down as Group Chief Executive by mutual agreement with immediate effect.   Mel Ewell, a Non-Executive Director, has been appointed Interim Group Chief Executive on a full time basis whilst the Board conducts an external search for a new Group Chief Executive.


Leslie Van de Walle, Chairman of SIG plc, said:


"On behalf of the Board and Group, I would like to thank Stuart for his commitment and all that he has contributed during his four year tenure as Group Chief Executive.  Stuart brought together a loose federation of independent businesses; developed a new strategy and plans to improve our procurement and supply chain functions; and identified new areas of organic growth opportunities in Air Handling and Offsite.


As Interim Group Chief Executive, Mel brings his experience in logistics, construction and engineering, and comes with a strong track record of operational delivery and successful change management at TNT and Amey.  During his five years as a Non-Executive Director he has developed a detailed knowledge of the Group, which has made him a strong individual to drive forward our plans during this transitional period."
