Susan Hooper

Susan Hooper, Non-executive Director of The Rank Group Plc ("Rank") and Chair of the ESG & Safer Gambling Committee, has notified the Board of her intention to step down on 31 January 2022 having completed over six years on the Board.


Alex Thursby, Chair, said: "On behalf of Rank I would like to thank Susan for her valuable contribution as a Director on the Board for over six years and as Chair of the ESG & Safer Gambling Committee for the past three and a half years. Susan's customer-centric approach has had a strong influence on the development of our transformation programme and helped lay the foundations for Rank's future growth. Her experience has also been crucial in broadening the scope of our Safer Gambling Committee to encompass ESG in its wider form, without losing our clear commitment to safer gambling. Susan will leave the Rank Board with our best wishes."


Katie McAlister has been appointed Chair of the ESG & Safer Gambling Committee with effect from 1 February 2022.
