Glyn Barker has been lined up as the next chairman of international support services and construction group Interserve

PWC’s former UK managing partner Glyn Barker has been lined up as the next chairman of international support services and construction group Interserve.
Barker is to join the board from 1 January 2016 and will become chairman on 1 March 2016.

Lord Blackwell announced last February that, after nine years as chairman, he planned to stand down once a successor had been found.

Until December 2011 Barker was vice chairman of PwC UK. He also held a number of other senior positions at PwC, including UK managing partner, UK head of assurance and a member of its UK management board. He also built PwC’s private equity-focused Transactions business.

He is a non-executive director of Aviva and of Berkeley Group Holdings, chairman of Irwin Mitchell, chairman of Transocean Partners and deputy chairman of English National Opera.

Adrian Ringrose, Interserve’s chief executive officer, said:”I am delighted that Glyn has agreed to join the board. His experience in leading complex organisations and boards and of working closely with stakeholders will be a powerful asset for the company as it continues to grow”.
