3PL strengthens Board as it moves into a new growth phase
Paul Dean has indicated his intention to step down as Non-executive Director and Chair of the Wincanton plc Audit Committee effective from the end of February 2021. Wincanton announced the appointment of Anthony Bickerstaff as a Non-executive Director of the Group with effect from 01 September 2020. Mr Bickerstaff will also be appointed as a member of the Company’s Audit and Nomination Committees. It is intended that Mr Bickerstaff will take over as Chair of the Audit Committee on Mr Dean’s departure.
Mr Bickerstaff is currently Chief Financial Officer of Costain Group plc, the FTSE All-Share smart infrastructure solutions company, a position he has held since 2006.
Before joining Costain, Mr Bickerstaff held a number of senior management and financial positions in Taylor Woodrow, including Finance Director of Taylor Woodrow Construction Limited. Prior to becoming Finance Director, he was Divisional Operations Director in charge of Taylor Woodrow Group’s PFI projects.
Tony has a strong financial pedigree and extensive knowledge of the infrastructure and support services sectors. His strategic and operational experience will further strengthen Wincanton’s Board as the Company moves into a new growth phase.
