As previously announced on 28 October 2011, Shepherd Neame Limited advises that Mark Rider (35) has today been appointed to the Board as Finance & IT Director. He replaces Ken Littlefair who steps down from the Board on the same date and retires from the Company at the end of March 2012.
Ken Littlefair joined Shepherd Neame in 2000 when he was appointed to the Board.

Commenting on the announcement, Miles Templeman, Chairman, said:
“I am delighted to welcome Mark to the Board. Mark joins us from J Sainsbury plc and we are confident that his previous experience in the retail sector will be of significant benefit to Shepherd Neame in supporting the management of the business going forward.
I would also like to thank Ken for his outstanding contribution to the company over the past twelve years. Ken has played a significant role in the company’s progress, particularly in modernising and developing our IT systems and improving business processes and the quality of management information flow. We wish him well in his retirement.”
