Andrew Macfarlane’s role as FD of Rentokil hangs in the balance as activist
shareholders are expected to demand that senior management figures step down.
Together with chief exec Doug Flynn, Macfarlane will present the company’s

may be gearing up to oust the pair.

lies with Doug and his management team.’
