Proposed Directorate Appointments


28th March 2022 - SkinBioTherapeutics plc (AIM: SBTX), a life Science business focusing on skin health, today announces the proposed appointments of Manprit Singh Randhawa as full time Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and Danielle Bekker as non executive director, subject to the completion of normal regulatory due diligence being carried out by the Company's AIM Nominated Adviser.


Chief Financial Officer


Manprit Singh Randhawa most recently worked as CFO at the leading educational technology firm, Juniper Education Group. Previously, he was CFO at Smoothwall and before then, at Onbone Oy, a medical technology business. He has in-depth knowledge in scale-up and growth environments as well as AIM experience having acted as Group Financial Controller of global radiation detection technology company, Kromek Group Plc.  He is a qualified chartered accountant and started his career at Deloitte.


It is proposed that Manprit will be taking over from Doug Quinn, SkinBioTherapeutics' current part-time CFO, upon Nominated Adviser confirmation of his appointment.


Non Executive Director


Danielle Bekker is to join the SkinBioTherapeutics Board as a non executive director. She brings experience in direct to consumer marketing, including a focus on the use of influencers and digital media in the FMCG (Fast Moving Consumer Goods) space having launched her own direct to consumer beverage business. She has a core set of skills that the Board believes will be invaluable to the Company as it commercialises its first product, AxisBiotix-Ps™, and subsequent products e.g. acne. She also has strong supply chain management and governance skills, having worked with big corporates as well as ecommerce skills developed by founding her own business in the drinks industry.



 Martin Hunt, Chairman of SkinBioTherapeutics, said:

"We have changed the CFO position from part time to full time role to reflect the new commercial path of the business. We are delighted to welcome Manprit to SkinBioTherapeutics at this exciting commercial stage of the Company's development, following the launch of AxisBiotix-Ps™. His financial expertise in scale-up environments at both private and AIM listed companies makes him an excellent fit for the full time CFO role and we are looking forward to him joining the team."  


He added, "We also look forward to welcoming Danielle to the Board. We have deliberately chosen a NED with FMCG experience since this brings a fresh outlook and varied experience, as well as her extensive network, to our commercialisation plans. She has considerable skills in how to sell to consumers using digital marketing, including influencers, which we believe will be invaluable as we accelerate the sales of AxisBiotix-Ps as well as driving our long-term ambitions of launching into other consumer areas."
