Tate & Lyle, the global provider of ingredients and solutions to the food, beverage and other industries, has appointed Dr Gerry Murphy (pictured) as a non-executive director and Chairman-designate. He will join the Board on 1 January 2017 and will succeed Sir Peter Gershon as Chairman of the company on 1 April 2017 following Sir Peter’s retirement as a Director on 31 March 2017.

Dr Murphy is Chairman of The Blackstone Group’s principal European entity. His early career was in the food and drinks sector, primarily with Grand Metropolitan plc (now Diageo) and Greencore Group, where he was CEO, before becoming CEO of Exel, Carlton Communications and most recently Kingfisher (2003 to 2008). He is a non-executive Director of British American Tobacco and Intertrust and has held non-executive directorships in a number of London-listed companies including Merlin Entertainments from 2013 to 2015.

Sir Peter Gershon says: “I am delighted to welcome Gerry to the Board of Tate & Lyle and very much look forward to working closely with him during the first quarter of calendar 2017 as we transition the Chairmanship. Gerry’s extensive experience in the food industry and as chief executive, investor and independent director in leading international companies equips him well to guide Tate & Lyle in the years ahead.”
