KELDA GROUP finance director Liz Barber has joined telecoms business KCOM as a non-executive director.
Barber, a former partner at Ernst & Young (EY), joined utilities provider Kelda in 2010. She will serve as Kelda’s audit committee chair when incumbent Martin Towers retires on 31 July after six years on the board.
Graham Holden, non-executive chairman of KCOM, said: “I am delighted to welcome Liz Barber to the board. Her audit knowledge and experience of working with publicly quoted companies will, alongside the contributions of our existing established members, further strengthen the board.”
KCOM finance director Paul Simpson spoke to Financial Director in 2012 about the major strategic partnerships it had entered into, with BT and Phoenix IT Group, that had transformed the telecoms group’s business model.
