Daniel King Exits his Positions at Plus500

King, the existing Chair of the Remuneration and ESG Committees, is the Board’s longest-serving Independent Non-Executive Director and External Director. He will complete his nine-year term under the provisions of Israel's Companies Law, 5759-1999.

In addition, he has been employed by Plus500 since it launched its IPO. His expertise in working with technology businesses has been priceless as he assisted in driving the Board and business.

Anne Grim, the Senior Independent Director and a member of the Remuneration Committee, will take over Daniel King’s role as Chair of the Remuneration Committee from 17 June 2022. Further, she will take on his responsibility as the third member of the Nomination Committee. Additionally, Steve Baldwin, a Non-Executive Director and a member of the ESG Committee, will succeed Daniel as the Chair of the Committee.

Reflecting on the announcement, Prof. Jacob A. Frenkel, the Chairman of Plus500, commented: "We are delighted to be welcoming Prof. Liberman to our Board. Having worked with a number of major international organisations over the years, she brings a significant experience and knowledge of corporate strategy, management decision-making and behavioral economics. Her views and perspectives will provide fresh dynamic to Board discussions and debates, and we look forward to working with her.

"In June 2022, our long-serving Independent Non-Executive Director and External Director, Daniel King, will end his maximum nine-year term. I would like to thank Daniel for his long-standing support and guidance to the Board since the Company's IPO in 2013 and during an eventful and exciting period since that time. Daniel is, and has always been, a highly effective and engaged Board member who has made significant contributions as Chair of a number of Board Committees over the years. On behalf of the Board, I wish him all the best.

"We are also delighted to be welcoming, as of 17 June 2022, Steve Baldwin as the Chair of our ESG Committee, and our Senior Independent Director, Anne Grim, as the Chair of our Remuneration Committee. We are sure that both Steve and Anne will provide dynamic leadership and continue the positive work. On behalf of the Board, I wish them best of luck".
