Hastings Group Holdings announces upcoming appointment of Selina Sagayam to its Board as Non-Executive Director

– UK, Bexhill-on-Sea – The Hastings Group Holdings plc (LSE:HSTG), announces the proposed appointment of Selina Sagayam as a non-executive director.

Ms Sagayam’s appointment is by nomination of the Founder Shareholders under the terms of a relationship agreement between the Company, the Founder Shareholders, and the GS Shareholders which entitles the Founders (subject to prescribed notice) to remove an existing and nominate a replacement director to the Board (for as long as their combined shareholding in the Company exceeds 5%). Ms Sagayam replaces Richard Brewster who will step down as a non-executive director.

The appointment was approved by the Board at a meeting on 26 July 2017 and will take effect on 14 August 2017; Mr Brewster’s resignation will take effect on the same date.

Ms Sagayam has, since August 2015, served as a non-executive director on the board of the Company’s FCA regulated subsidiary entity, Hastings Insurance Services Limited and also chairs the Risk Committee; she will continue in that role.

Ms Sagayam is the Head of UK Transactional Practice Development in the London office of law firm Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher. She is an English qualified lawyer who joined the firm as a partner in 2007. Her appointment to the Company’s Board is in a personal capacity and unconnected to her position with Gibson Dunn.

Mike Fairey, the Company’s Chairman, commented: “Richard has been involved in the business for many years, having been a member of the management buyout team which acquired the business in 2009; I would like to thank him for his contribution. I would also like to welcome Selina to the Board and look forward to working with her.”
