Severn Trent Plc: Group Company Secretary and General Counsel changes

The Board of Severn Trent Plc (the 'Company') today announces that Bronagh Kennedy will retire as Group General Counsel and Company Secretary on 2 December 2022, having served the Company for nearly 12 years.

Effective 2 December 2022, the role of General Counsel and Company Secretary for both Severn Trent Plc and Severn Trent Water Limited will be split into two roles - the Group General Counsel and the Group Company Secretary.

Didar Dhillon will be appointed as the Company's new General Counsel for both Severn Trent Plc and Severn Trent Water Limited with effect from 2 December 2022.

Didar joins Severn Trent from Pinsent Masons LLP, where he is a Partner and leads their Birmingham Projects and Local Government Practices. Didar specialises in the energy and infrastructure sectors acting for local authorities, government departments and private sector organisations across England and Wales. He has closed over 40 major projects and has latterly focused on the delivery of the Net Zero Agenda through innovative smart cities, community energy and E-mobility schemes.

Hannah Woodall-Pagan will be appointed as the Company's new Group Company Secretary for both Severn Trent Plc and Severn Trent Water Limited with effect from 2 December 2022 following the retirement of Bronagh.

Hannah is a Chartered Company Secretary and is a Fellow of the Chartered Governance Institute. She has substantial corporate governance and listed company experience, gained in a number of senior leadership roles spanning the FTSE100 and FTSE250. Hannah joined the Group in 2015 from Mitchells & Butlers Plc, where she spent five years in a variety of roles of increasing responsibility within the company secretarial, governance and risk functions.

Christine Hodgson, Chair, said: "The Directors wish to express our appreciation for the significant contribution made by Bronagh during her tenure as Group General Counsel and Company Secretary and thank her for her long-standing service. We wish her the very best in her retirement.

Didar and Hannah's appointments underline the Company's continued commitment to strong corporate governance and the quality of its succession planning and talent management processes. Their appointments will allow for an orderly and seamless handover and we look forward to working with them."
