Barbara Moorhouse steps down as Chair of OPM Group

Tuesday 26 May 2015

Barbara Moorhouse has today announced that she is stepping down as Chair of OPM Group with effect from 31 May 2015.  Barbara joined OPM Group as a non-executive director in 2009 and was appointed as Chair in 2012.

On her time with OPM Group Barbara said “I have very much enjoyed my time at OPM Group working alongside a talented team with a real commitment to public service values.  As Chair, I have overseen the integration of OPM and DbyD, changes in the business model to adapt to changing market conditions and the appointment of a new chief executive to take the group forward.  The governance arrangements for the group need to be aligned with recent changes and I am therefore standing down as Chair.”

OPM Group chief executive Peter Holland commented “On behalf of the directors and the members, I would like to express my thanks to Barbara for her contribution to OPM Group over the past 6 years.  We have benefitted from her wide experience and clarity of thinking – and enjoyed her sense of humour.  We wish her well in her future non-executive career.”
