Chemring Group PLC has announced the appointment of Alpna Amar as an independent non-executive director. She will become a member of the audit and nomination committees.
Chemring specialises in the manufacture of high technology products, including detectors for explosive and chemical or biological hazards, and the provision of services to the aerospace, defence and security markets.
Amar is currently corporate development director of British construction giant Kier Group and has been a member of its executive committee since May 2021. Her experience is in corporate, operational and commercial finance, strategy, M&A and investor relations in both corporate and consulting positions. Prior to Kier Group, she held senior investor relations and corporate development roles at global automotive suppliers, TI Fluid Systems plc and International Automotive Components Group SA.
Carl-Peter Forster, chair of Chemring, commented: “Following an extensive selection process, I am delighted to welcome Alpna to Chemring. She brings considerable experience of corporate strategy across a range of consulting and corporate roles and I am confident that she will be a valuable addition to the board. As we recently set out in our interim results, Chemring is well positioned to benefit from the increasingly positive defence market, and we will continue to align the business to meet this demand.”
