worldwide today announces changes regarding its Chief Financial Officer position, its Board and Group Executive
The Group is implementing an organisation change that will remove one organisational layer impacting its Senior

Financial Officer reporting to the Group CEO, AndrÃ© Lacroix and will join the Board as an Executive Director and the
Group Executive Committee.

Group CEO, AndrÃ© Lacroix and the Company Secretary will report to the General Counsel. The Heads of Tax, Treasury,
Procurement, Financial Control, Financial Reporting and Analysis and Financial Operations will report directly to the
Group CFO and Ed Leigh, currently Group Chief Financial Officer, will cease to be a director of the Company with
immediate effect and will be leaving the Company in due course.
Ross joined Intertek two years ago and has been a driving force in the performance of the business. Ross has a strong
track record as a finance executive with JP Morgan, Gleacher Shacklock, Greenhill and Inchcape.
