Carillion Announces New Group Finance Director


Carillion has appointed Zafar Khan as Group Finance Director, following the news Richard Adam is to retire as he approaches his 60th birthday. Zafar joined Carillion's Middle East and North Africa business as Finance Director in 2011 and was formerly Chief Financial Officer with Associated British Ports. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, and also serves as a Trustee of Make-a-Wish Foundation UK.


Commenting, Carillion Chairman, Philip Green, said:

"We are delighted to appoint Zafar Khan to the role of Group Finance Director.  Zafar has already made a significant contribution to the success of the Group and his appointment continues our excellent track record of developing our own people and allows for a seamless transition following Richard Adam's retirement.  We look forward to working with Zafar and to him continuing to play a leading role in Carillion's development and success.

"On behalf of the Board I should like to thank Richard Adam for his outstanding financial leadership and the contribution he has made to the Group since his appointment as Group Finance Director in April 2007".
