– UK, Bolton – K3 Capital Group plc (AIM:K3C), a leading business and company sales specialist in the UK, has strengthened its Board and senior management team with the appointment of Martin Robinson as an independent Non-Executive Director of the Company and Stuart Lees as Executive Director, both with immediate effect.
The two appointments give the Company additional AIM and financial services experience and strengthen the corporate advisory parts of the business at an important time for K3.
Martin Robinson is a highly experienced private and public company director with over 25 years’ experience in financial services. He currently serves on the board of a number of the subsidiary companies of AIM-quoted Brooks Macdonald Group Plc, the integrated wealth management group. Martin joined Brooks Macdonald in 2010, and has since most notably been appointed as Executive Chairman of Brooks Macdonald Funds Limited in 2011, which establishes and manages a range of property based funds and in 2012 as Non-Executive Chairman of Braemar Estates (Residential) Limited, which provides block management services to apartment freeholders.
Stuart Lees has primarily been involved with an advisory role assisting larger transactions within KBS Corporate Finance. The Board now believes that the Group will take greater benefit from Stuart’s expertise upon him taking a more formal, active role as an Executive Director, by aligning his interests more closely with the success of the business.
Commenting on the two appointments, Chief Executive Officer of K3, John Rigby, stated: “We are delighted to welcome Martin to the Board of K3 and are pleased that the Group has attracted a director of Martin’s calibre and experience. We are confident that Martin’s significant AIM-company and financial services experience will prove highly valuable to the Board during this exciting period for the Group.
“It is also a pleasure to announce that Stuart will be taking an executive role on the Board as he continues to play an important role in realising the growth potential of the KBS Corporate and KBS Corporate Finance divisions going forward.”

He was Chief Executive Officer at Henry Cooke Group plc, a stockbroking and investment management business and a director at Brown Shipley & Co Ltd, a private bank.
Martin is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales and was previously on the AIM Advisory Committee as a founder member, overseeing the development and regulation of the market in 1995.
