Edward Braham, Chair of M&G plc, commented:


"I am delighted we have attracted someone of Elisabeth's calibre to the M&G Board. She brings a wide mix of executive and non-executive experience across a range of sectors and geographies that will be valuable in supporting our growth and transformation journey.


I am looking forward to working with her when she joins the Board in the summer.


I would also like to thank Clare Thompson for agreeing to continue as SID. Her experience and counsel are much appreciated by me and the rest of the Board."
