DIRECTORATE CHANGE

 

SEAMUS KEATING TO STEP DOWN AS NON-EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

 

The Company announces that Seamus Keating, who serves as an independent non-executive director and member of the Audit and Risk Committee, Remuneration Committee and Clinical Performance and Sustainability Committee, will step down from the board of Mediclinic at a date to be agreed in due course. This follows Mr Keating's appointment as Chief Executive Officer of First Derivatives plc with effect from 15 January 2020. The Board will shortly commence a process to identify a suitable replacement for Mr Keating, with an announcement to follow accordingly. Mr Keating will continue to discharge his current Mediclinic responsibilities in the meantime.

 

Dr Edwin Hertzog, Chairman of Mediclinic, commented:

 

"On behalf of my colleagues on the Board, I would like to thank Seamus for his commitment and valued contributions to the Board and the Group over the past seven years. We wish him well as he commences his new demanding role."
