Board change

Speedy, the UK's leading tools and equipment hire services company, operating across the construction, infrastructure, and industrial markets, announces that James Bunn has tendered his resignation as Chief Financial Officer ("CFO") to pursue an opportunity in an unrelated sector. The Company has agreed that James will step down as CFO and from the Board on 1 November 2022.

The Board has appointed an external head-hunter to start the process to find a permanent successor.

In the intervening period, the Board is pleased to announce the appointment of Paul Rayner. He will assume the role of interim CFO with effect from 1 November 2022, for a period of up to 12 months allowing time for the Board to complete the recruitment process. Paul is a Fellow of The Institute of Chartered Accountants with over 25 years' experience in senior financial roles, including interim and permanent roles respectively on the main boards of FTSE-listed companies, Avon Protection PLC and Chemring Group PLC. Until his leaving date has been agreed, James will continue working with Paul and the rest of the Speedy executive team to ensure a smooth hand over of responsibilities.

The Board confirms that trading in the first half of the financial year has been in line with its expectations. As previously announced, the Group intends to report its interim results for the six months ended 30 September 2022 on 15 November 2022.

David Shearer, Chairman, said:

"On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank James for his contribution at Speedy and wish him well in his new role. I am pleased to welcome Paul Rayner as interim CFO, which will allow the Board time to conduct a thorough process to find a successor to work with CEO Dan Evans as he drives forward Speedy's growth strategy."
