29 June 2022

First Milk has today announced the appointment of Frank Colhoun as a non-executive director.

Frank is an experienced finance professional having held Chief Financial Officer roles in multinational manufacturing and industrial businesses including Lafarge, Honeywell and Novar Plc. He is now the Chief Financial Officer of family-run property development and investment business, Surplus Property Solutions.

Frank’s appointment is effective from August 4, 2022, and arises as current First Milk non-executive director, Brian Mackie, has come to the end of his three terms and so will retire from the Board at the 2022 AGM.

Commenting on the announcement, Chris Thomas, Chairman of First Milk, said:

“Frank brings a wealth of commercial and financial experience to the Board, which will be invaluable as we navigate the challenges ahead. In particular, he has substantial experience in Corporate Finance, which will be invaluable to First Milk as we continue to grow and develop over the coming years. I look forward to working with him and the rest of the Board and Executive as we work to achieve our vision of enriching life every day to secure the future.

“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Brian for all his hard work and contribution to the success of First Milk over many years. During his tenure, Brian has played a significant role in re-shaping the business, and providing leadership to the Finance, Audit and Risk Committee, where his input has been invaluable. I wish him all the best for the future.”
