("CentralNic" or the "Company", or the "Group")

Board Changes

CentralNic Group plc (AIM: CNIC), the global internet platform that derives recurring revenue from operating marketplaces for online presence and online marketing services, announces the appointment to its board of Claire MacLellan ("Claire") as a Non-executive Director with immediate effect. Claire replaces Tom Pridmore who steps down from the board today.

Claire recently stepped down after 6 years from the position of Chief Growth Officer & President of Future US at Future plc, a FTSE 250 media company that publishes and monetises over 250 media brands. Claire has played a key executive leadership role in the transformation of Future plc where she helped build and executed its fast-growth, diversification strategy, taking adjusted operating profits from a six-figure sum to over $250 million in four years, while growing its global audience from 30 million to over 430 million.

Claire has also played a central role in Future plc's M&A strategy, involving many acquisitions, including that of GoCompare in 2021 for a consideration of almost $800 million. Prior to Future plc, Claire was at Fitness First Group for 11 years, holding a number of roles including being responsible for the design and delivery of the group strategy, M&A, international franchising, and entry into new markets.

Tom Pridmore has been a Non-Executive Director of CentralNic since its IPO in 2013 when annual revenues were just $4 million. Since this time, he has helped turn CentralNic into a global business with revenues for the first six months of 2022 of $335 million. The Board would like to thank Tom for his support and wish him every success going forward.

Ben Crawford, CEO of CentralNic commented: "We are delighted to welcome Claire to our board. She has a wealth of experience in growing a public company similar to CentralNic both organically and inorganically. Claire ' s skillset is an ideal fit with CentralNic ' s strategic ambitions and we look forward to her contributions to our Board."

Iain MacDonald, Chairman of CentralNic said: " It is a source of great regret that Tom Pridmore is leaving our board after 9 years with us since the IPO. I and the other board members have enjoyed working with him immensely, and his wise counsel has been invaluable. We wish him continued success with the growth of his business. "
