– UK, Amersham – Halma PLC (LSE:HLMA), the leading safety, health and environmental technology group, announces that, further to its 6 April 2017 announcement, Marc Ronchetti, currently Group Financial Controller, will succeed Kevin Thompson as Group Finance Director.
Kevin Thompson will continue as Group Finance Director until the recruitment of Marc’s successor as Group Financial Controller is completed and an orderly handover of both roles has occurred. This is anticipated to be no later than 31 July 2018.

Since joining Halma, Marc has worked closely with Kevin Thompson and through this period and the recruitment process, he has demonstrated that he brings significant operational and corporate financial expertise to the Group.
I would like to thank Kevin for his continuing support in completing an orderly transition. I look forward to working closely with Marc and together ensuring the ongoing success of Halma.”
