NMBS has announced that Jeremy Miller, a qualified chartered accountant, is its new Non-executive Chairman.

Miller has worked in the City in finance for more than 35 years. This included time spent as an auditor with KPMG, before moving to a major stockbroker, and later investment banks and financial advisory firms. His career has also included a two-year secondment to The Takeover Panel.

In addition, Miller has held a number of key non-exec roles - including serving as chairman and a non-executive director at a major housebuilder and contractor.

Chris Hayward, Managing Director at NMBS, said: "It is great to welcome such a strong appointment to our management board. I am sure Jeremy's vast financial experience and knowledge will prove a real asset to the business and will enable him to provide excellent leadership and governance to the board at NMBS.

"The whole team is looking forward to working with Jeremy on the many key initiatives we already have underway to drive even greater success for our members and suppliers."
