Rob Campbell, outgoing Chairman of GPG, will remain on the Board as a non-executive director to maintain continuity as GPG continues the transition to becoming Coats plc.
Mike Clasper said: ‘Rob Campbell has done an excellent job in overseeing GPG’s asset realisation programme and the ongoing investigation by the UK Pensions Regulator. I am very much looking forward to leading GPG through the next stage of its evolution and I am extremely pleased that Rob is remaining on the Board to give us the benefit of his experience and insight.
‘I am also delighted that Ruth is joining the GPG Board as a Non-Executive Director and that she is taking on the important role as Chair of the Audit Committee. Her deep experience in finance and audit together with her non-executive directorships in both the consumer and industrial sectors mean she is ideally placed to do so.’
Mike Clasper is currently Chairman of GPG’s subsidiary Coats plc, the world’s leading industrial thread and consumer textile crafts business, and is a Non-Executive Director of GPG plc. He is a Non-Executive Director at Serco Group plc, Chairman of Which? Ltd. and was, until recently, Senior Independent Non-Executive Director of ITV plc.
He has served as Chief Executive Officer of BAA plc, Chairman of HM Revenue & Customs, Operational Managing Director at Terra Firma, and held a number of senior management positions at Procter & Gamble.
Ruth Anderson is currently Non-Executive Director and Chair of the Audit Committee at both Ocado Group plc and Travis Perkins plc, and sits on the Board of GPG’s subsidiary Coats plc. Ruth is a chartered accountant and has spent much of her career at KPMG LLP where she was a member of the UK board for the six years to 2004 and vice chairman for the five years to 2009.
