Imperial Brands PLC
08 May 2019

Imperial Brands PLC today announces the following changes to its Board.


Jon Stanton will join the Board with immediate effect and will also be a member of the Audit Committee and Succession & Nominations Committee.


Jon was appointed Chief Executive of Weir Group PLC in 2016, having previously been CFO from 2010. Prior to that he spent 22 years at Ernst & Young, LLP, the last 9 years of which were as an audit partner.


Imperial Brands also announces that Malcolm Wyman, Senior Independent Non-Executive Director has, for personal reasons, decided to step down from the Board.


Malcolm will be succeeded as Senior Independent Non-Executive Director by Therese Esperdy. Therese has been working alongside Malcolm on the Chairman's succession process announced in February, which Therese will now continue with in her role as Senior Independent Non-Executive Director.


Chairman Mark Williamson said: "I'm delighted to welcome Jon to Imperial Brands. He has a wide range of experience, with a first-class international business track record, including significant US exposure.


"I would also like to thank Malcolm for his significant contribution to the Board and its Committees over the past eight years and wish him well in the future."
