LONG-SERVING Personal Group finance director John Barber is to step down from the role.
Barber joined the listed employee benefits business in 1991 having qualified in 1985 as a chartered accountant with Grant Thornton. He joined Personal Group’s board in 2000. Barber also serves as company secretary.
However, overall finance responsibility had been taken on by Mike Dugdale in January 2013, joining the board as chief financial officer.
Mark Scanlon, chief executive of Personal Group, said: “John has played an important role in the development of the group over the past 23 years, and the board wishes him the best for the future. John’s input over many years of growth for the group has been invaluable, and an orderly handover is now underway in advance of his departure in June.”
