Fabiola Arredondo, who is US based, has decided to step down as Chair of the Remuneration Committee to focus on her substantial US professional commitments.

Fabiola will remain on the Remuneration Committee to assist in the transition.

Orna is currently Senior Independent Director at Saga plc and Royal Mail plc, where she also chairs the Remuneration Committee, as well as Deputy Chairman at the National Trust.

Orna was previously Senior Independent Director at HMV Group plc, Northern Foods plc and Bupa.

Sir John Peace, Chairman, said: “We are delighted to welcome Orna to the Board. In addition to the experience she brings on remuneration matters, her strong UK plc and business experience will be a great asset to Burberry as we continue to focus on delivering long-term shareholder value.

On behalf of the Board I would like to thank Fabiola for chairing the Remuneration Committee through a period of significant change and am delighted we will still be able to call on her experience both on the Remuneration Committee and the Board.”
