KCOM Group PLC today announces appointment of Non-Executive Director

KCOM Group PLC today announces the appointment of Liz Barber as a Non-Executive Director of the Board. Liz is Group Director of Finance for Kelda Group, having joined the business in 2010. She was previously with Ernst & Young where she was made a partner in 2001 and was the senior partner for audit for the north of England. She is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales.

On appointment, Liz will become a member of the Audit, Remuneration and Nomination committees.

Martin Towers, Non-Executive Director and Chairman of the Audit Committee for KCOM Group, has indicated his intention to retire from the Board at the AGM on 31 July 2015 after six years with the business.  Liz will therefore be appointed as Chairman of the Audit Committee with effect from Martin’s retirement.

I am delighted to welcome Liz Barber to the Board. Her audit knowledge and experience of working with publicly quoted companies will, alongside the contributions of our existing established members, further strengthen the Board.
