Prior to this appointment, Mark was an existing Non-Executive Director of the Company, holding the position of Senior Independent Director since joining the Board on 3 July 2017 and has held the position of Interim Non-Executive Chair since May 2021.

Following his appointment, Mark will continue to Chair the Company's Remuneration and Nomination Committees.
