The Board of Dairy Crest, the leading UK-owned dairy foods company, announces that Stephen Alexander will become the company’s Chairman with immediate effect.

He replaces Anthony Fry, who was taken ill earlier this year.  Anthony will leave the Board of Dairy Crest with immediate effect.

Stephen Alexander was appointed as a Non-executive Director in January 2011.  He has been Chairman of the Remuneration Committee since May 2012.

Richard Macdonald, who has been Acting Chairman while Anthony has been unable to work, will resume his role as Senior Independent Director.

Mark Allen, Chief Executive of Dairy Crest, said:  “It is sad that Anthony will no longer chair the Board.  Anthony has had a significant influence on the business since his appointment as a Non-executive Director in 2007, and especially since he became Chairman in 2010.  I shall miss working with him.”

“Stephen has been a very strong non-Executive and makes an excellent replacement.  I am looking forward to working more closely with him.”

Stephen Alexander said: “I am delighted to take up the role of Chairman.  Dairy Crest is a good business and I look forward to helping to continue to further develop the company.”

Dairy Crest expects to issue its half-yearly trading update on 22 September 2014 and its Interim Results for the six months ending 30 September 2014 on 6 November 2014.
