Following a rigorous, externally-supported selection process, the Board today announces that Shonaid Jemmett-Page will be appointed as Chairman of the Board following the 2020 AGM. Ms Jemmett-Page has served as a Non-Executive Director and Audit Chairman of the Company since 2012.
Tim Ingram, Greencoat UK Wind Chairman said:
“I have had the privilege of being Chairman of Greencoat UK Wind since its inception in 2012. At the age of 72 I believe it is right for me to retire in April next year through not seeking re-election at the AGM. I continue to be delighted at the great value created for shareholders by Greencoat Capital management, who have succeeded in establishing the leading listed renewable infrastructure investment company, and have met or exceeded all the targets set at the time of our IPO in March 2013. I am very confident that the Company will be in good hands with Shonaid Jemmett-Page as my future successor.”

“On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Tim for his highly valued contribution to the Company. I look forward to assuming my new role as Chairman from April next year.”
