Cadbury’s Bonfield to join Kingfisher as non-exec

Andrew Bonfield, who is set to leave his role as Cadbury’s CFO, is joining
Kingfisher as a non-executive director.

He will serve as the chairman of the DIY group’s audit committee when Phil
Bentley steps down.

Bonfield served as CFO of Bristol-Myers Squibb, BG Group and Smithkline
Beecham, and was a non-exec at BOC Group.

“He has tremendous international business experience and I am sure we will
benefit from his expertise as we strengthen and grow our businesses around the
world,” said Kingfisher chairman Daniel Bernard.

“It is an exciting international business, with strong retail brands and
well-established market positions in Europe and Asia. It has a clear strategy
for growth and I look forward to working with the rest of the Board on
delivering value for shareholders,” said Bonfield.
