chairman of Ashtead Group from 2001 to 2004.

John Gildersleeve to the group as non-executive chairman and Stella David,
Carolyn McCall and Henry Staunton as non-executive directors. Their experience
will be extremely valuable as the group continues to implement its strategy for
growth and explores further opportunities.”
