In November, the Company announced that Lily Liu, Chief Financial Officer of Essentra plc, had informed the Board of her intention to leave Essentra to take up a new role and that a search for her successor, who would go on to become the Chief Financial Officer for the Essentra Components business, had commenced.

The Board is delighted to have recruited Jack Clarke to succeed Lily and they will work closely together during the coming months to ensure a smooth transition.

Jack commented, "I am looking forward to joining Essentra at this important time in its history as it seeks to become a pure play Components business. Essentra is well positioned to deliver the strategic reviews of the Filters and Packaging businesses successfully and for the Components business to accelerate its growth trajectory. I look forward to working with the team and to enhance the business for its employees, customers and shareholders."

Paul Lester, Chair, said "I am pleased that Jack has agreed to join the Board as Chief Financial Officer. His established expertise as a CFO will be invaluable to the business in the coming years. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Lily again for the role she has played in helping the team deliver on the Group's strategy and growth objectives."
