Further to the statement issued on 9 July 2015, The Go-Ahead Group plc is pleased to announce the appointment of Patrick Butcher as Chief Financial Officer.

Patrick joins the Group from Network Rail where he has been Group Finance Director since 2009. He led capital raising activities in public markets for the organisation prior to its reclassification in 2014 as a public sector company.

Patrick brings a wealth of industry experience to the position having held finance director roles at English, Welsh and Scottish Railways (now DB Schenker), Mapeley Limited, London Underground and Kings College Hospital. His early career was spent at Deloitte & Touche as a management consultant and auditor. Until recently, he was also a member of the British Transport Police Authority.

Patrick will join the Group by May 2016. To ensure an orderly transition, Go-Ahead’s Financial Controller, Paul Edwards, will become Interim Group Finance Director following Keith Down’s departure on 13 November.

David Brown, Group Chief Executive, said:

“I am delighted that Patrick is joining the Group and look forward to working alongside him. He will be an excellent addition to the Go-Ahead team, bringing strong financial management capabilities as well as significant transport sector and stakeholder experience.”

In accordance with the UK Listing Rules, the Company confirms that there are no further details that are required to be disclosed under paragraph LR9.6.13(1) – (6) of the UK Listing Rules in respect of Patrick Butcher.
