Pendragon has appointed Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE) divisional director and former chief operating officer of Opus Energy, Nikki Flanders, as a non-executive director.
The AM100’s former number one retailer said in an announcement issued via the London Stock Exchange today (March 13) that Flanders would take office on April 1.
Flanders will serve on the Company’s Nomination Committee, Remuneration Committee and Audit Committee, it said.
The statement added: “Ms Flanders joins following an extensive executive career across a range of sectors, including retail, utilities and digital, within both regulated and non-regulated environments.
“Previous roles have included that of chief operating officer of Opus Energy, a wholly owned subsidiary of Drax Group Plc, plus senior non-statutory executive roles at Telefonica, M&S, WH Smith, Centrica and O2.”
Flanders will combine her non-executive role at Pendragon with a divisional managing director position within SSE Plc.
Welcoming Nikki Flanders to the board, Pendragon’s recently-appointed chief executive and interim chairman, Bill Berman, said: “I am delighted that Nikki is joining the Board and look forward to working with her.
“I am confident that her extensive track record and considerable experience across a range of sectors will provide significant insight as we continue our transformation.”
