City heavyweight joins Be Heard team
The company has a new face around the boardroom table.

Be Heard (LON:BHRD), the digital marketing group, has appointed a City heavyweight to the board.

David Poutney, the former head of trading at the merchant bank Numis, replaces Rodger Sargent as a non-executive director.

"Today’s changes mark a further step in our evolution as a public company,” said chairman Peter Scott.

“We are grateful to Rodger, whose experience has proven invaluable to Be Heard in its early days on AIM. We wish him every success with his various ventures.”

Poutney has enjoyed a long and illustrious career in the Square Mile. He started out with Midland Bank before becoming a number-one ranked financials analyst at BZW, James Capel and UBS.

In his 20 years as a corporate broker, he worked directly on the listings of over 30 companies.

And he advised a number of growth companies including Domino’s Pizza, Alliance Pharma and Mithril Capital into which Be Heard reversed last November.
