The Capita Group Plc announces that it has made a number of changes to the Group Board, broadening its composition to support the continued growth of the Company.
The Board is pleased to announce the appointment of Vic Gysin and Andy Parker to the Group Board as Joint Chief Operating Officers with immediate effect.
Vic Gysin joined Capita in 2002 and is currently the Divisional Director for Capita's Insurance and Investor Services Division.

Vic is an experienced business director with strong leadership and
management skills.
Andy Parker joined Capita in 2001 and is currently the Divisional Director for Capita's ICT, Health and Business Services Division. Prior to assuming this position he held a number of senior finance director positions across the Group including most recently three years as Senior Divisional Finance Director of all Capita's non-regulated businesses. Previous to Capita he was commercial manager for Phoenix IT Group and held senior finance roles within Misys PLC. Andy is a Chartered Accountant and has extensive commercial and financial experience.
As part of these changes, Simon Pilling has stepped down from the Board and is leaving the Group. Simon joined Capita in 1999 and has served on the Group Board since 2006 as joint and then sole Chief Operating Officer. He has played a key role in ensuring the quality of our operational delivery and contributed strongly to the success of the Group.
Paul Pindar, Chief Executive of the Capita Group Plc, commented,
"These changes to the Board are being made to support the next stage of our continued growth. Both Vic Gysin and Andy Parker have strong operational and commercial experience, build excellent working relationships with clients and have proved exceptional leaders of their respective divisions. We are very
confident that Vic and Andy will make an excellent contribution as members of the Board and warmly welcome them to their new roles.
"My Board colleagues and I would like to take this opportunity to thank Simon Pilling for his hard work and outstanding contribution to the success of Capita over the last 11 years. Since joining the Group Board in 2006, Simon has overseen our impressive operational performance and was particularly instrumental in establishing our thriving Indian operations. We are grateful for the robust operational structure which he leaves as his legacy. With his considerable commercial insight, we are sure he will continue to be successful in his future career and we wish him well.
These changes to the Board will ensure we have a talented and substantial team in place to continue supporting the success of Capita going forward."
