The Gym Group plc Announces Board Changes

The Gym Group plc announced that David Kelly has been appointed as an Independent Non-Executive Director of the Company with effect from 5th July 2016. David will become Chairman of the Remuneration Committee from this date. David is currently a Non-Executive Director of On the Beach Group plc and Trinity Mirror Group plc. In 2007, David co-founded and, more recently, has built a wide portfolio of non-executive and advisory positions, including non-executive Chairman of Love Home Swap, Pure 360 and MBA & Company. David was previously Vice President, Operations/Chief Operating Officer at eBay from 2003 to 2007 and Senior Vice President of International at Rackspace from 2010 to 2012. With the appointment of David Kelly, the Company has two independent non-executive directors in addition to the chairwoman on the Board and is fully compliant with the UK Corporate Governance code. Jim Graham, Chief Operating Officer, has notified the Board that he wishes to leave the Company by the end of the year to return to the private equity arena and step down from the Board at that time. The Board has strengthened the Executive team by the recruitment of an Operations Director and a Marketing Director. Nick Henwood, a highly experienced operator who was previously at David Lloyd Leisure, Mothercare and Autoglass, will join as Operations Director in August 2016. Barney Harrison has been recruited from Sky where he held marketing roles at Sky Ireland and Skybet and will take up the Marketing Director position in October 2016. With both joining in the autumn there will be ample time for a full and thorough handover of responsibilities. Both positions will sit on the Company's Executive Committee.
