Howard Kimberley, Hampson Industries PLC's Finance Director, is stepping down from the Board after ten years with the Group. He will be succeeded by Ram Swamy with immediate effect.

Ram Swamy has 21 years experience in financial positions within the life sciences and marketing sectors. He has lived and worked in North America, Asia and Europe. Ram is a Chartered Accountant from India and a Certified Public Accountant from the US.

Most recently, from 2008 to 2010, he was Chief Financial Officer on the Board of Goldshield Group, a global pharmaceutical and consumer health business. From 2003 to 2007 he was CFO of Iron Mountain's medical record management business based in Michigan, USA.

During the past decade Howard has been a key figure in the strategic turnaround of the business from a group of small, UK-focused engineering and industrial businesses to an international aerospace group that employs 1,400 staff across three continents. He will continue to provide assistance to the Group as a consultant for a short period in order to assist with proposed disposals and ensure an orderly handover.

"I would like to thank Howard for his dedicated service as Finance Director of the Group over the past ten years. Through a number of strategic acquisitions he has been instrumental in the transformation of Hampson into a focused, international aerospace group with two global leadership positions. Howard leaves Hampson with the best wishes of the Board," said Chairman Chris Geoghegan.

"The Board also welcomes the arrival of Ram Swamy in the Group. Ram has an impressive track record and we are confident that his skills and experience will be invaluable to the company at this important stage in its development," he said.

Hampson Industries' operations are structured into two business segments, serving the global commercial and military aerospace markets from manufacturing facilities in the UK, North America and India.

Hampson is a world leader in the design and manufacture of close tolerance tooling and assembly systems for large composite and metallic aero structures. The Group employs approximately 1,400 people worldwide.
