His strategic and operational experience will further strengthen our Board as Wincanton moves into a new growth phase."

Tony Bickerstaff commented: "'I am looking forward to joining Wincanton. The company has a highly respected market position and I am excited to be arriving at a time when the company is so well positioned for growth."

Mr Bickerstaff will be stepping down from his current Non-executive Director and Chair of the Audit Committee roles at the Low Carbon Contracts Company Limited and Electricity Settlements Company Limited with effect from 2 October 2020.
