Date: 14 October 2021

14 October 2021

Quilter today announces that Glyn Jones has indicated his intention to retire from his role as Chair of Quilter plc and a Director in 2022, once a successor is in place. 

The Board Corporate Governance and Nominations Committee has established a process, to be led by Ruth Markland, Senior Independent Director, to identify a new Chair as his successor and an announcement will be made at the appropriate time.

Glyn Jones, Chair, said:

“It has been an enormous privilege for me to serve as Chair of Quilter since November 2016. I have greatly enjoyed leading a strong and diverse Board, which has overseen Quilter’s journey through IPO and the first few years as a listed company. Now that Quilter has been substantially simplified to focus on its core UK market, our future strategy and medium-term objectives are clear, and the Board has recently been refreshed, I believe it is also time for a new Chair. In the meantime, I remain fully committed to the company and look forward to continuing to work with my excellent Board colleagues until my successor is appointed.”

Ruth Markland, Senior Independent Director, said:

“On behalf of the Quilter Board, I would like to thank Glyn for his great stewardship of the Board over the last five years. During his tenure, in partnership with our Chief Executive, Paul Feeney, and his executive management team, Quilter has matured into a business that is poised to deliver on its potential.”
