Prudential plc (LON:PRU) announced changes to the composition of its Board.
As part of our progress towards the demerger of M&GPrudential, John Foley, Chief Executive of M&GPrudential, Nic Nicandrou, Chief Executive of Prudential Corporation Asia, and Michael Falcon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the North American Business Unit, will step down as members of Prudential’s Board at the end of the Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) on 16 May 2019. They will remain in their executive roles and as members of the Group Executive Committee.
Lord Turner of Ecchinswell has decided to retire from the Board at the end of the AGM. He joined the Board as a Non-Executive Director and member of the Risk Committee in September 2015, and became a member of the Audit Committee in May 2017.
Paul Manduca, Chairman of Prudential, said: “We have reviewed the composition of the Board in the context of the demerger of M&GPrudential, towards which we continue to make good progress.
“John Foley will naturally stand down from the Board as part of M&GPrudential’s transition to an independent business. Given Prudential’s changed shape following the demerger, we have decided that the roles of Chief Executive of Prudential Corporation Asia and Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the North American Business Unit will no longer be positions on the Board.
“I would like to take the opportunity to thank John Foley, Nic Nicandrou and Michael Falcon for their service to the Board. They will continue to lead their respective Business Units, work closely with the Board and remain members of the Group Executive Committee.
“In advance of his retirement in May 2019, I would also like to thank Lord Turner for his service. His experience has been of great value to the Board and the Risk and Audit committees.”
