Indivior PLC - Directorate Change
Indivior PLC announces that Daniel Tassé has notified the Board of his intention to stand down as a Non-Executive Director of the Company in order to focus on his increasing business commitments. Mr Tassé will not stand for re-election at the Company's next Annual General Meeting and will stand down at the conclusion of that meeting.
Daniel Tassé has been a Non-Executive Director for over six years and is currently Senior Independent Director, Chair of the Audit Committee and a member of the Remuneration Committee. As announced in November 2020, a search is underway to identify an additional independent Non-Executive Director with recent and relevant financial experience and the search has been expanded to identify a further Non-Executive Director.
Graham Hetherington, Chair of the Board of Indivior PLC, commented:
'Daniel joined the Board in 2014 and was appointed Senior Independent Director in 2016. He has been a strong contributor since the Company's listing. His strategic and commercial experience and acumen have been invaluable, as was his strong leadership while stepping in as Interim Chair in June 2020 at a critical time for the Company. On behalf of the entire Board, I would like to extend our thanks to Daniel and wish him well.
This announcement is made pursuant to Listing Rule 9.6.11(2).
