Miller is delighted to announce that Jeannette Lichner is to join the partnership board as an independent non-executive. 

Greg Collins, Chief Executive of Miller, commented: “Jeannette has considerable experience across many disciplines, including technology, transformation, compliance, risk management and human resources, from her work within the financial services sector in the UK, the US and internationally. The skills that she brings will complement and support our partnership board and help us to be even better prepared for the challenges ahead. We look forward to Jeannette’s valuable input to Miller, its people and its business.” 

Jeannette’s appointment is subject to the approval of the Financial Conduct Authority. After this has been granted, she will assume the Chair of the Risk Committee and will become a member of Miller’s Audit and Remuneration committees. 

Until Jeannette’s committee appointments take effect, the Risk Committee will continue to be chaired by Ian Buckley. Following Jeannette’s appointment, Ian will take the chair of the Audit Committee, a position currently held by Clare Thompson, who is soon to retire from service at Miller.  

Greg Collins commented, “Clare has been a tremendous asset to Miller over the last six or so years, and has provided invaluable support to the partnership board as it has worked through structural, financial and organisational change in recent times. We all thank her for her contribution to Miller’s continuing success, and wish her well for the future.”
