SThree appoints new Non-Executive Director

Elaine O’Donnell has been appointed Non-Executive Director of SThree plc.

Elaine O'Donnell has been appointed as a Non-Executive Director, effective from 1 October 2022.

Elaine will chair SThree's Risk & Audit Committee from the same date - taking over from Barrie Brien, Interim Chair - and serve on our Remuneration and Nomination Committees.

A Non-Executive Director provides independent oversight and constructive challenge to the Executive Committee (ExCo). The ExCo reports to the Board of Directors, which includes the Non-Executive Directors.

Elaine qualified as a chartered accountant at PwC and spent much of her executive career specialising in corporate finance, latterly serving as a partner in Transaction Advisory Services at EY. Throughout her career she has worked extensively with global businesses across a range of market capitalisations and industry sectors.

“Elaine is an accomplished senior executive with over twenty years' experience operating at board level,” said James Bilefield, Non-Executive Chair. “She brings to SThree both broad and deep business experience and financial capability, plus highly developed commercial and people judgement. We are delighted to welcome her to the Group. Her strong experience in working with high growth, FTSE listed businesses will serve to strengthen our Board as the Company continues to execute its strategy.”
