Intertek Group plc announces its new Group Executive Committee and Board Change
March 20, 2023
Intertek Group plc announces the appointment of Colm Deasy as Group Chief Financial Officer and as an Executive Board Director of the Group replacing Jonathan Timmis who has stepped down from the Company with immediate effect. In addition, the Company is establishing a new Group Executive Committee effective as of today’s date.
Intertek has a track record of attracting, developing and retaining the best talents in our industry. Colm joined Intertek in 2016 as our Group Treasurer, adding the Tax Director role, was then our Regional Managing Director for Asia Pacific and before his promotion was President Global TT, B&C and People Assurance. Prior to Intertek, Colm worked in banking and Insurance in EMEA, before coming to the UK to take up senior roles in finance and general management.
The Board believes that the new team, led by André Lacroix, will best position the Company to take advantage of the exciting growth opportunities ahead, in a world where companies are increasing their focus on risk‐based quality assurance to make their businesses stronger.
In addition to André Lacroix, Group CEO, the newly formed committee will comprise:
|Ayush Dhital Asia Pacific|
Bertrand Mallet Industry Services
Carlos Velasco Latin America and B&C
Ian Galloway Caleb Brett
John Fowler Minerals and E&P

Trading remains in line with expectations and the full year guidance communicated on 28 February is unchanged.
André Lacroix commented:
“We truly believe that growing our people is central to our growth agenda. We are confident that our diverse Group Executive committee is the right team to lead Intertek to greater heights capitalising on the demand acceleration we are seeing for our ATIC solutions. My colleagues and I look forward to sharing our Intertek 2030 growth strategy at our Capital Markets Day on 3 and 4 May in London.
I would like to thank Jonathan for his contribution to the Company and wish him all the best for the future. I would also like to welcome and congratulate all the Group Executive Committee members on their appointments.”
