She is currently Chair of the Edinburgh Investment Trust plc, a Non-Executive Director of W. P.

Clare Thompson, who has been the acting Senior Independent Non-Executive Director (SID) since 24 May 2023, has been appointed to be the SID.

Edward Braham, Chair of M&G plc, commented:

“I am delighted we have attracted someone of Elisabeth’s calibre to the M&G Board. She brings a wide mix of executive and non-executive experience across a range of sectors and geographies that will be valuable in supporting our growth and transformation journey.

I am looking forward to working with her when she joins the Board in the summer.

I would also like to thank Clare Thompson for agreeing to continue as SID. Her experience and counsel are much appreciated by me and the rest of the Board.”
