Board Changes

Wolseley plc today announces the following changes to its Board of Directors. 

Andrew Duff, currently Wolseley’s Senior Independent Director, will step down from the Board at the next Annual General Meeting after nine years of service with the Company.  His responsibilities as Remuneration Committee Chairman and as Senior Independent Director will be assumed by Alan Murray, with effect from 1 August and 1 October 2013 respectively.

In order to continue to capitalise on the significant growth opportunities in the USA, Frank Roach, who is currently responsible for both the USA and Canada will dedicate more of his time to leading the business in the USA.  John Martin will assume executive responsibility for Canada in addition to his role as Group CFO. 

Gareth Davis, Chairman, commented:

“I would like to thank Andy for his outstanding contribution to Wolseley over the last nine years and wish him the very best for the future.  We are fortunate to have a Non Executive Director of the calibre of Alan Murray to succeed Andy and we wish him every success in his new role.”
