James Fisher & Sons plc announces today that Claire Hawkings will join the Board as an independent non-executive director with effect from 1 January 2022.

Claire is currently a non-executive director and chair of the ESG committee of Ibstock Plc, a market leading manufacturer of clay and concrete building products, as well as a non-executive director of Defence Equipment and Support, a Bespoke Trading Entity and Arm's Length Body of the Ministry of Defence. Claire has over 30 years' experience in the energy sector, where she held a variety of international leadership positions, most recently with Tullow Oil plc, and prior to that with BG Group plc and British Gas plc.

James Fisher also announces that, after nearly nine years on the Board, Mike Salter has informed the Board of his intention to retire from the Board with effect from the Company's AGM on 5 May 2022.

Angus Cockburn, Chairman, commented:

"I am delighted that Claire has agreed to join the Board of James Fisher. Claire's significant experience gained over many years in the energy sector will be extremely valuable to the Board. Mike's experience and knowledge of the oil and gas and marine industries has been of huge benefit to James Fisher, and I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Mike for his contribution to the Board over the past nine years."
