Appointment of Chairman Designate

Carr's (CARR.L), the Agriculture and Engineering Group, is pleased to announce that Peter Page has been appointed as Non-Executive Director and Chairman Designate with effect from 1 November 2019.

In line with the succession plan announced in December 2018, Peter will subsequently become Non-Executive Chairman upon the current Chairman, Chris Holmes, standing down at the Group's AGM on 7 January 2020.

Peter has extensive international business experience and knowledge of the agricultural sector. He was most recently the Chief Executive Officer of Devro plc, one of the world's leading manufacturers of collagen casings for the food industry, and previously worked for Aviagen. During Peter's 11-year tenure at Devro he revitalised the business, transforming the Company's manufacturing capabilities on an international scale.

Peter Page, Non-Executive Chairman Designate, commented: "I am thrilled to be joining the Board of Carr's. The Group has market leading brands and robust market positions internationally across both its Agriculture and Engineering divisions together with a strong focus on innovation and technology.

"I look forward to supporting Tim Davies and the rest of the management team as they continue to develop and grow the businesses, both in the UK and internationally."

Chris Holmes, Non-Executive Chairman, commented: "I am very pleased that Peter has accepted the role of Chairman of Carr's. His experience, latterly as CEO of Devro, will be hugely beneficial to the Group and I am confident that Peter is the ideal candidate to take over. I have no doubt that under his stewardship, Carr's will continue to go from strength to strength and I look forward to working together until I step down in January."

John Worby, Senior Independent Director, commented: "On behalf of the Board, I am delighted to be welcoming someone of Peter's calibre.  I am sure that his experience both internationally and within the agricultural sector will be invaluable to Carr's as we continue to pursue our growth agenda."
