Begbies AGM to approve Gittins as FD

Shareholders are expected to rubber-stamp the appointment of John Gittins as
Begbies Traynor’s new FD in a few hours.

The mid-tier firm said: ‘Begbies Traynor is pleased to announce that, at the
AGM to be held later today, proposals will be put to shareholders to approve the
appointments of Mr John Gittins to the board of directors of the company.’

ICEAW-qualified Gittins, was most recently finance director of Vertex Data
Science, until recently a wholly owned subsidiary of United Utilities, between
1999 and 2007. Prior to that, in 1993, he joined Spring Group plc a fully listed
UK Support Services company, where he was group FD.

Graham McInnes, who has been FD since Begbies floated on AIM in September
2004, will remain on the board, but will assume the new role of corporate
development director.

Geoffrey Hill, who is currently a non-executive director, will also become

an executive director of the company with responsibility for developing
services to the accountancy profession.

Begbies chairman Ric Traynor added: ‘Graham McInnes’ move, to concentrate his
considerable knowledge on corporate development will, we believe, create
opportunities for Begbies to continue to grow the range of services we can offer
to our clients.’
