New Non-Executive Director appointed at PFK

Penrith Farmers and Kidd’s PLC are pleased to announce the appointment of a new Non-Executive Director. Stephen Dunn will join the board from November 2018. Stephen is a qualified Chartered Accountant, Chartered Tax Adviser and Chartered Wealth Manager.

Originally from Preston, Stephen joined the audit practice of KPMG in 1976 (which was then Peat Marwick Mitchell & Co) and, after a two-year secondment in London, he became a partner in Preston at the age of 34. In March 2016, he left KPMG after a long and varied career.

While at KPMG, he developed a flair for corporate transactions and quickly gained experience on many acquisitions, flotations and disposals as a founder of Corporate Finance within KPMG in the North West.  During his time as Corporate Finance Partner, he worked on some of the region’s larger transactions and a myriad of project fundraising exercises.

Since leaving KPMG, he now works as financial consultant, and holds a number of non-executive appointments

Stephen commented:

“I am pleased to be asked to join the board at PFK at an exciting time in the company’s development.’’

In addition to this, Jeanette Brown is standing down as chairman of PFK, with John Rowlands taking her place. John joined us in July 2015 as a non-executive director and, being a valued asset to PFK, he was a natural choice for our new chairman.

PFK’s Managing Director, Stephen Lancaster, had the following comment to make:

“I am very excited that Stephen Dunn has chosen to come on the PFK board as our business continues to evolve. Stephen has had a very successful career at KPMG and brings an exceptional depth of knowledge and experience to the PFK board.

I am also pleased that John Rowlands who has been a board member since 2015 has accepted the role of Chairman of the PFK board and I look forward to continuing to work with him closely.

John Rowlands succeeds Jeanette Brown who is stepping down after 11 years of excellent service on the PFK board. I would like to thank Jeanette from the Company and personally for her diligence and guidance whilst at PFK.’’
