BT Group plc Board and Committee changes

BT Group plc ("BT Group") today announced that Leena Nair has decided to step down from the Board as a non-executive director at the conclusion of the 2022 Annual General Meeting ("AGM"), given her increase in executive responsibilities as the Global CEO of Chanel. She will therefore not be put forward for re-election at the 2022 AGM on 14 July, having served on the Board since July 2019.

Adam Crozier, BT Group's Chairman, said "On behalf of the Board, I would like to thank Leena for her contribution during her time at BT Group. She has been a distinguished member of the Board and its Remuneration and Nominations Committees, and has chaired our Digital Impact & Sustainability Committee with real vision, resulting in the publication of the BT Group Manifesto."

Following Leena stepping down, Sara Weller will become chair of the Digital Impact & Sustainability Committee. Sara has been a member of this committee since joining the Board in July 2020.

In line with ongoing succession planning of the Board, we are currently undertaking a search for additional non-executive directors with the support of an external search consultant. As part of this, the diversity of the Board will be addressed as a priority and in any event within FY23.
