Anna will join Johnson Matthey on 17th October.

ROYSTON, UK: Johnson Matthey has appointed Anna Manz, currently the group strategy director and a member of Diageo Plc's executive committee as group finance director, effective 17th October succeeding Den Jones.

This follows the announcement on 2nd March that Den Jones will step down as group finance director; Den will resign from the board and will leave Johnson Matthey. The board would like to thank Den for his contributions during his time with the group.

During her 17 years at Diageo, Anna has held a series of senior financial roles, at both group and regional level, including finance director spirits North America, group treasurer and subsequently finance director Asia Pacific. As well as strong credentials in financial leadership, Anna brings international experience and deep commercial awareness to Johnson Matthey.

In her current role as group strategy director, Anna leads Diageo's strategy and business development activities and also leads the mainstream spirits business.

"I am delighted that Anna will be joining Johnson Matthey in October and I am looking forward to working with her. Anna's strong financial, strategic and commercial experience in a large global company, together with her background in chemistry, will enable her to make an immediate contribution to the development of Johnson Matthey as we pursue our strategy of delivering long-term profitable growth," said Robert MacLeod, chief executive of Johnson Matthey.

"I am thrilled to be joining Johnson Matthey at such an exciting time in the group's development. I am very much looking forward to getting to know and working with Robert and the team to build on the group's success and in driving Johnson Matthey forward into its third century of growth," said Anna Manz.
