The Rank Group Plc ("Rank") announces that Steven Esom, Non-Executive Director and Chair of the Remuneration Committee, has notified the Board of his intention to step down on 31 December 2022, having completed over six years on the Board.


Lucinda Charles-Jones will succeed Steven Esom as Chair of the Remuneration Committee and has been appointed as the Designated Non-Executive Director for workforce engagement with effect from 1 January 2023.


Alex Thursby, Chair, said: "On behalf of Rank I would like to thank Steven for his valuable contribution as a Director on the Board and as Chair of the Remuneration Committee for the past six years. Steven's wealth of experience in consumer-focused industries, coupled with his long-standing strategic and shareholder experience, has had a strong influence on the Board and helped lay the foundations for Rank's future growth. His experience has also been crucial in broadening the scope of our Remuneration policies. Steven will leave the Rank Board with our best wishes.
