Director Appointments

Findel appoints new chairman

16 December 2016 07:56

Findel has appointed Ian Burke as executive chairman. He succeeds David Sugden who is standing down following 7 years as chairman of the group. Burke will take up his position on 12 January. Burke will step down from the board on that date and leave the company at the end of January following a short handover period.

Burke has served in a number of high profile consumer-facing roles. He is currently chairman of the FTSE 250 gaming company The Rank Group, having previously overseen the growth of that business as chief executive. Previously, he has served as CEO of Thistle Hotels and has also held the position of managing director at both Holiday Inn Worldwide and Gala Clubs.

Findel senior independent director Eric Tracey said "Following a comprehensive search process we are pleased to welcome Ian to Findel. As the Group continues to target further growth, the Board is confident that Ian's experience will prove of significant value, especially given his recent role in overseeing the multichannel transformation of Rank. "On behalf of the Board I would also like to take this opportunity to thank David Sugden for his substantial contribution to the Group over 7 years in which the group has been refinanced and focused on two core businesses which now have potential for growth. We wish him every success for the future."
