BRITISH LAND FD Lucinda Bell has joined Rotork as a non-executive director.
Bell’s appointment follows a range of governance and board changes at the FTSE 250 manufacturing business in recent weeks.
IMI chief executive Martin Lamb joined Rotork as a non-executive in June, alongside John Nicholas stepping up to senior independent director. Sally James was appointed to chair its audit committee from 20 June.
Rotork also ended its 50-year audit relationship with KPMG, replacing the firm with Deloitte.
Bell, a chartered accountant, has been busy in recent months helping to gain access to £1.5bn in debt finance for British Land, including a £785m revolving credit facility set up in April.
