Directorate Change

Fever-Tree, the world's leading supplier of premium carbonated mixers, announces that Charles Rolls, co-founder of Fever-Tree, has informed the Board of his intention to step down from his current role as Non-Executive Deputy Chairman at the Group's next Annual General Meeting on 4 June 2020.

Bill Ronald, Chairman of Fever-Tree, said:

"As one of the co-founders of Fever-Tree, Charles's entrepreneurial vision and passion has been integral to the success of the company as it has grown to become the no. 1 premium mixer brand across the globe.

On behalf of the Board I would like to pass on our thanks for his valued contribution to the Board. He has been an absolute pleasure to work alongside. His experience and passion for Fever-Tree has shone through in all our discussions and although we lose a Board colleague, we keep a good friend."

Tim Warrillow, Co-Founder and CEO, said:

"It really has been a fantastic experience and an enormous amount of fun working with and building the business alongside Charles. He is undoubtedly a great entrepreneur, he was one of the first to successfully breathe life into the premium gin category with Plymouth Gin and then of course Fever-Tree, so Gin & Tonic drinkers around the world owe him a great debt of gratitude.

 

I will certainly miss working alongside him, but we have not only built a very strong business partnership over the years but also a great friendship and I look forward to many more Gin & Tonics together."

 

Charles Rolls said:

"Co-founding and developing the Fever-Tree brand has been the focus for an immensely satisfying 17 years of business life, from the idea, through to selling our first case, and on to the millions we now sell worldwide. While I am stepping down from the Board, I remain a great supporter and significant shareholder in Fever-Tree and am as passionate about the business as ever. Fever-Tree deals in a world of best before dates and I am happy to be stepping down before I reach mine.

I am leaving a business in robust health. Fever-Tree has a fantastic team in place, led by an inspirational CEO in Tim and I have no doubt there will be many exciting years ahead for the company. I take this opportunity to thank all involved in the success including the worldwide team, our suppliers and our customers."
