"Jonathan is a highly regarded FTSE 100 CFO, and brings a wealth of financial, strategic, technology and regulatory expertise, encompassing both business-to-business and business-to-consumer, which will be of huge benefit to Experian. He has considerable executive and non-executive UK-listed boardroom experience, and this will further enhance the strength, depth and effectiveness of the board," says Experian Chair Mike Rogers.
Marks & Spencer Group PLC - FTSE 250-listed grocer - Announces Non-Executive Director Pip McCrostie will retire from the board with immediate effect. McCrostie was appointed to the role back in 2018.
