Rathbone Brothers Plc - Director Resignation

Oliver Corbett, a non-executive director of Rathbone Brothers Plc (“Rathbones”), will today, subject to regulatory consent, join the board of Close Brothers Group plc, a company listed on the London Stock Exchange, as an independent non-executive director. Accordingly it has been agreed that also today, Oliver will step down from the Rathbones board and that James Dean (who joined the board on 1 November 2013) will, in accordance with Rathbones’ succession plan, succeed Oliver as Chairman of the audit committee.

Mark Nicholls, Chairman of Rathbones said “Oliver has been a director of Rathbones since March 2006 and as such was approaching the end of his nine year tenure as an independent director. The board is very grateful for the very valuable contribution he has made over the years. We wish him well for the future”.
