Whitbread FD joins the board at HMV

Rogers steps into a non-executive role at the music colossus while retaining his position as the hospitality company's finance boss

Whitbread FD Christopher Rogers will be joining the board of HMV Group in a
non-executive capacity as of 1 October.

He will also chair HMV Group’s Audit Committee, and takes a seat on the
Nomination and Remuneration Committees.

Prior to joining Whitbread in May 2005, Rogers, 46, was group finance
director of Woolworths Group and chairman of Woolworths Group Entertainment and
Wholesale Publishing businesses.

He qualified as an accountant with PWC and joined Kingfisher Group as
corporate finance manager in 1988.

Subsequent appointments included group financial controller at Kingfisher,

finance director of Comet Group and four years as commercial director at
Comet.

In March 2005, Rogers stepped down from the board of Woolworth Group before
its struggling home entertainment arm MVC Entertainment was liquidated, but the
chair of HMV believed he would be a significant addition to the board.

Carl Symon, chairman of HMV Group, said: ‘I am delighted that Chris will be
joining our Board. He brings a strong retail and commercial background combined
with the respect of the financial andinvestor community, and will undoubtedly
make a valuable contribution to HMV Group.’
