Benckiser has today announced the appointment of David Tyler as
an independent non-executive director.
Tyler was group FD of GUS plc from February 1997 until October 2006 when the
corporate demerged into the
Group and the Home Retail Group, which led to a move into a non-executive
position at Experian.
Prior to joining GUS, he was FD of Christie’s International, and in his early
career held positions at County NatWest Ltd and Unilever. Tyler, a fellow of
CIMA, is a member of
the Association of Corporate Treasurers and is also currently a non-executive
director of Burberry Group.
Adrian Bellamy, chairman of Reckitt Benckiser, commented: ‘The board is
delighted that David has agreed to join us. He will bring a wealth of financial
and business experience to the board. I am sure he will make a significant
contribution to the future success of the company.’
