ROLLS-ROYCE APPOINTS SARAH ARMSTRONG

AS CHIEF PEOPLE OFFICER

 

Rolls-Royce (LSE:RR., ADR:RYCEY) announces that Sarah Armstrong will take up the post of Chief People Officer with effect from 1 January 2022, providing strategic leadership of our People agenda. She will join the Executive Team from Civil Aerospace, where she was most recently People Director and instrumental in delivering our restructuring programme. Sarah replaces Harry Holt who leaves the business at the end of the year, following the announcement of his departure on 5 October. Separately, Ben Story, Strategic Marketing Director, has decided to leave us, after five years on the Executive Team, to pursue new opportunities.

 

Warren East, CEO, Rolls-Royce, said: "Sarah has held many senior positions during her 15-year career with Rolls-Royce, providing great organisational leadership and delivering innovative people initiatives. I look forward to welcoming her to the Executive Team. I would also like to wish Ben well in his next endeavours. He was attracted to Rolls-Royce by the opportunity to help drive change across the Group and in the last five years we have renewed our brand, vision and strategy and we are now well-positioned to lead the transition to net zero as a global power group and to benefit from greater digitalisation. I am grateful for the central role that Ben has played in bringing about these changes."
