Appointment of new CEO to UK Business

31 January 2014

Appointment of new CEO to UK Business

The Board of A2 Corporation is very pleased to announce that Scott Wotherspoon is to assume the role of Chief Executive Officer of the wholly owned subsidiary, A2 Milk (UK) Ltd, effective from this date.

A2C advised in November 2013 the agreement to acquire the 50% interest in the UK joint venture then owned by Muller Wiseman Dairies and to enter into a contract packing agreement with effect from January 2014. The company also advised of a number of operational changes to the sales and marketing functions of the business and changes to the UK subsidiary Board structure as a result. These changes increase our ability to manage and support the ongoing development of the UK business.

This appointment is consistent with our plan to further enhance management resources to drive growth in the UK business. The role will report through the local board structure to myself and be based at the Company’s Guildford office near London.

Scott joins the Group with an outstandingly strong skill set in sales, marketing and entrepreneurial businesses primarily in Europe. His previous roles have included:

• 15 years in marketing, sales and commercial roles within Unilever in both Europe and Asia
• The CEO of a specialist beauty devices business, creating an entirely new category in the UK and ultimately securing a global distribution deal with Procter and Gamble
• Most recently, the CEO of Plum Baby, a successful private equity backed food business in the UK recently acquired by Campbells Foods.

Scott has a degree from Cambridge University and is married with three children.
