Retirement of Chair of the Board

Fever-Tree, the world's leading supplier of premium carbonated mixers, announces that Bill Ronald has informed the Board of his intention to retire from his role as Chairman and to step down from the Board at the time of the AGM in May 2023. Bill was appointed to the Board as Chairman in June 2013 ahead of the Company's IPO in November 2014.

The Nomination Committee, led by Coline McConville, Senior Independent Director, will initiate a process to identify and appoint his successor and a further announcement will be made in due course. Bill will remain in his position until the AGM in 2023 to facilitate effective succession planning.

Tim Warrillow, Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer, commented: "On behalf of the Company, I would like to thank Bill for his commitment and dedication to Fever-Tree over the past nine years in which time he has made a real and lasting contribution to our success. I have always greatly appreciated his passion for the business and his unwavering good nature and whilst I look forward to 12 more months of working closely together, he will be much missed."

Bill Ronald, Chairman, commented: "It has been a privilege to serve as Chairman of Fever-Tree during a truly transformative time for the brand. There is a fantastic team in place across the globe, and I have no doubt it has a hugely exciting future ahead of it."
