Change of Role of Director

Monday June 1, 2015

Personal Group Holdings Plc (AIM: PGH), a leading provider of employee benefits, and employee related insurance products in the UK, is pleased to announce that, Deputy Chairman and Chief Operating Officer, Ken Rooney is stepping down as an Executive Director and will become Non-executive Deputy Chairman with effect from 1 July 2015. Ken has been part of the Personal Group organisation for 15 years, joining the Company in 1999. In 2003, he succeeded founder Christopher Johnston to become Chief Executive of the Group, a role he carried out for six years and again for an interim period before the appointment of Mark Scanlon. During this time, Personal Group posted increases in both profit and turnover year on year, building on the foundations established by its founder. When Ken started, employee benefits were a small element of the Company’s business, now they are an integral part of the Personal Group offering. Under his leadership, he oversaw the initial growth of the Group. His dedication to the Group is illustrated by his decision to take up this new post of Non-Executive Director and continue as Deputy Chairman. Mark Scanlon, Chief Executive of Personal Group, said: “We are delighted to have Ken continue his association with Personal Group, where he has worked loyally and tirelessly for nearly two decades. I will always be very grateful to Ken for the selfless support he gave me in the course of what was an orderly handover. We look forward to Ken’s continued involvement with Personal Group. His skills and experience will be of great benefit to other members of the Executive and Non-Executive Board.”
