Johnson Service Group announce new chairman

William (Bill) Shannon, chairman of Johnson Service Group PLC, has advised the JSG Board of his intention to retire from the Board in May 2021.

The Group has announced the appointment of John (Jock) Fyfe Lennox to the Board as an independent non-executive director with effect from 5 January 2021. The intention is that Lennox will step up to the role of chairman in May following the AGM.

With his extensive experience as a non-executive director, coupled with his financial background, Lennox is a valuable addition to the JSG Board.  He is a chartered accountant and, in both his executive career at Ernst & Young LLP (‘EY’) and as a non-executive director, he has worked across a range of industrial and consumer sectors, including support services. Since leaving EY in 2009, he has developed an active board career sitting on and leading boards that have undertaken a range of organic and corporate development and growth strategies.

Peter Egan, CEO of JSG, commented: “I would like to thank Bill for his counsel and unwavering support during his time with JSG, which has supported the team in developing our strategy and growth plans.  I am delighted to welcome Jock to the JSG Board and I look forward to working with him closely.  His wealth of financial and commercial experience will broaden the Board’s expertise and will serve the Group well over the years ahead.”
