2 Sisters Announces Two New Appointments To Board of Directors
2 Sisters Food Group has announced that it has appointed Richard Pike (pictured) as the company’s new chief financial officer, and has also appointed current chief operating officer Martyn Fletcher to its board, from July 1st 2017.
Pike will join 2 Sisters on July 17th, become a member of the Board of Boparan Holdings Limited (the company which trades as 2 Sisters Food Group) and report directly to CEO Ranjit Singh.
Commenting on both appointments, 2 Sisters Chairman Lord Allen of Kensington, said, “These are two very important appointments and I welcome both Richard and Martyn to the Board.
“Richard is a high calibre finance chief with a broad level of experience which will stand him in very good stead as the business rises to the many external challenges in a changing world and fast-moving market place. His new board colleague Martyn has made great progress in his 18 months at the business and I look forward to working even more closely with him in the future.”
'Pedigree And Experience'
Richard takes over from Group CFO Stephen Leadbeater, who has decided to step down due to personal reasons.
Prior to joining 2 Sisters, Pike has previously worked for Associated British Foods PLC as managing director of British Sugar, and prior to this held the role of Group CFO for AB Sugar.
Ranjit Singh, CEO of 2 Sisters Food Group, said, “I am delighted to welcome Richard to 2 Sisters. He joins at an extremely important time for the business, and I am confident he has the right pedigree and experience to help steer us to our next stage in developing a better business.”
“I would also like to convey my thanks to Stephen Leadbeater for his hard work and commitment to the business over the past three years. I am very sorry he has decided to step down, but I wish him all the very best for the future.”
