FORTERRA plc have announced the appointment of Vince Niblett to the board as an independent non-executive director with immediate effect.
Mr Niblett (pictured) was previously a partner at Deloitte where he held a number of senior roles, including membership of the UK board of directors and global managing director of audit and enterprise risk services before, retiring in May 2015.
During his career at Deloitte, he served some of the firm’s most significant public company clients, working with them on commercial and strategic issues as well as providing audit services.
Mr Niblett is currently an independent non-executive director of Big Yellow Group plc where he is chairman of the audit committee.
He will succeed Justin Atkinson as chairman of Forterra’s audit committee when Mr Atkinson becomes chairman of the board following the conclusion of the company’s 2019 AGM in May.
Paul Lester CBE, chairman of Forterra, commented: ‘I am delighted that Vince has agreed to join the board of Forterra. He brings extensive experience from his time at Deloitte and I am convinced he will be a valuable addition to the board.’
