Rentokil brings in Murray as CFO

Murray waiting in the wings to take over as finance director of pest control heavyweight in the New Year

Michael Murray has been appointed as Rentokil’s CFO-in-waiting, replacing
Andrew Macfarlane.

Murray will officially become a director and CFO of the pest control giant
from 5 January 2009 and Macfarlane will stay on for a period to ensure a smooth
handover.

News of Macfarlane’s departure came a surprise to investors because no
mention was made of it when chief executive Alan Brown delivered a third quarter
results presentation earlier this month, which detailed a 73% drop in Q3
profits.

Alan Brown said: ‘I am delighted that Michael Murray will be joining the
company. Michael’s operational skills and experience will make a significant
contribution to Rentokil Initial’s Operational Excellence agenda.’

Murray joins from GSL, a private equity owned support services company,
recently acquired by G4S. Prior to that was chief financial officer of TNT
Express, TNT’s global express parcels division.
