Imagination Technologies has appointed former BT chief executive Sir Peter Bonfield to its board as a non-executive director.
Bonfield led BT from 1996 to 2002. He has served on the boards of 12 international technology companies, including Sony, NXP, Mentor Graphics and Ericsson, and received the Financial Times Outstanding Director of the Year Award 2019.
Imagination makes graphics, vision and AI processing technologies for smartphones and other devices. The company signed a new contract with Apple in January, three years after Apple scrapped a previous deal.
Chinese-backed private equity firm Canyon Bridge bought the company for £550m in 2017 and pledged to appoint more independent directors to the board to allay concerns it would be redomiciled to China.
