Annette Flynn to resign from Aryzta’s Board of Directors

Zurich / CH. (aag) Swiss-Irish Aryzta AG announces that Annette Flynn will resign from the Board of Directors with effect from the conclusion of today’s Extraordinary General Meeting of Shareholders (EGM). The Board asked Flynn to remain as a Member of the Board recognising the importance of her role as Audit Committee Chair, given the increased complexities of the financial year-end in light of the resignation of the CFO (effective end FY-2020); the recent appointment of new auditors at the 2019 AGM; and, the challenging financial circumstances arising as a consequence of Covid-19. While the Board continues to believe that Audit Committee continuity, in these circumstances, represents the best interests of Aryzta, Flynn has accepted the expected decision of shareholders. Concluding, Gary McGann, Aryzta AG Chair, said «we appreciate Annette’s commitment to Aryzta and thank her for her contribution to the Board and for her highly effective stewardship of the Audit Committee».
