Countrywide has named Amanda Rendle as a new independent non-executive director of the estate agency group; she joined the board yesterday.
Rendle has over 30 years of marketing and communications experience numerous sectors including financial services and professional services; she has previously worked also at Barclays Bank and HSBC as well as working through her own consultancy described as focussing “on customer experience.”
Amongst her existing business activities is a non-executive directorship at Tesco Bank.
Last week the agency group announced that its new chief operating officer, starting next month, would be Bruce Marsh, a former Tesco finance director who will report to Countrywide’s group managing director Paul Creffield.
Former Countrywide chief executive Alison Platt - who resigned from the role in January 2018 - is herself a non-executive director sitting on the board of Tesco PLC, a role she took up while still running the agency group and which she continues in today.
Commenting on Amanda Rendle’s appointment, Peter Long, Countrywide’s executive chairman says: "I am delighted to welcome Amanda to the board of Countrywide PLC. She brings a wealth of experience from a business career that spans financial and professional services. Her particular experience in marketing and her broad commercial skills and experience will complement the board.”
