Diageo announces the appointment of Susan Kilsby as Chair of its Remuneration Committee, with effect from 29 January 2019.

Susan replaces Lord Davies, who is stepping down from the role but will remain on Diageo’s Board of Directors and as a member of its Remuneration Committee.

Diageo’s Chairman, Javier Ferrán, said:

“Susan is a highly talented and experienced director, having served on a number of boards including as Chairman of the Board of Shire plc since 2014 up until its recent sale to Takeda.  She has strong and extensive experience in executive remuneration and has chaired BBA Aviation plc’s Remuneration Committee since 2013.  I would also like to express my gratitude to Lord Davies for serving as Chairman of the Remuneration Committee for more than seven years. I look forward to his continuing contributions to the work of the Committee and the Board.”
