Interdealer broker TP ICAP plc revealed this Friday that it is making some changes to its Board of Directors. Namely, Angela Knight CBE, who has spent almost nine years on the company’s Board, will not seek re-election.
The announcement was filed through the London Stock Exchange (LSE). Specifically, the broker said that at its next Annual General Meeting, Knight will not seek re-election as a Director of TP ICAP plc, and will consequently be stepping down from the Board.
Knight’s resignation from the Board coincides with the company revealing that Knight, who is a Non-executive Director and Senior Independent Director of TP ICAP plc, was appointed as a member of the Board of Encore Capital Group Inc.
This appointment took place on the 25th of September 2019, the statement released today said. Encore Capital Group Inc is a consumer banking company listed on NASDAQ.
