In addition to publishing its third-quarter financial results this Thursday, IG Group has also announced a series of changes to its Board of Directors. Namely, the online trading provider has secured Helen Stevenson as a Non-Executive Director of the company.
In addition to being a Non-Executive Director of the company, Stevenson, who was appointed to the new role on Wednesday, has also been made a member of IG Group’s Remuneration Committee.
Stevenson’s background is in marketing, and he has worked across a number of industries. The appointment today is not her first position as a Non-Executive Director, and she also has experience regarding remuneration matters, the company said.
Commenting on the appointment, Company Chairman Mike McTighe said in the statement: “Following an extensive, externally facilitated, search I am delighted to welcome Helen to the Board.”
“She is a highly experienced Non-Executive Director with significant marketing and digital skills and experience. Helen’s appointment complements and builds on the skills of the existing Board members and her experience in the ever-changing world of executive remuneration is especially welcome.”
Stevenson is currently the Senior Independent Director of Reach plc and Kin and Carta plc and a non-executive director of Skipton Building Society. She has a BA (Hons) Degree in Chemical Engineering from Cambridge University.
“IG Group is an award-winning, multi-platform trading company with strong technology assets, a high-quality customer base and a clear and exciting growth strategy. I’m looking forward to working with the Board and the management team to realise further the potential of the business,” Stevenson said on her new role.
