Segro names former KPMG vice-chairman as non-exec

Former KPMG vice-chairman of corporate finance Christopher Fisher takes a non-executive directorship at Segro

FORMER KPMG corporate finance vice chairman Christopher Fisher has taken a non-executive director role at industrial property developer Segro.

With more than 30 years’ experience in corporate finance, Fisher held the managing director role at Lazard before he became vice chairman of corporate finance at KPMG.

In June this year, he was appointed chairman of the Bank of Ireland, having been non-executive director since 2010. He is also currently senior partner Penfida Partners, a consultancy providing corporate finance advice to pension funds.

He was also chairman of Southern Cross Healthcare Group between April and September 2011, having served as non-executive director since 2006.

Along with Fisher, Baroness Ford is also taking a non-executive directorship, with Andrew Palmer, senior independent director, and Chris Peacock, chairman of the remuneration committee, both retiring.

Chairman of Segro, Nigel Rich, said: “I am delighted to welcome Margaret and Christopher to the board. They are two very talented individuals who, between them, have an extensive depth and breadth of industry and board experience.

“With their considerable knowledge of the property sector, they will be a great asset to our Board as Segro continues with the strategic repositioning of its portfolio.”
