Interserve chairman given new Berkeley role

Interserve chairman Glyn Barker has been named deputy chairman and senior independent director of Berkeley Group.

He has replaced National Infrastructure Commission chair Sir John Armitt, who joined the board of the housebuilder in 2007 and was named deputy chairman in 2012.

Mr Barker, who was named chairman of Interserve in March 2016, was appointed a non-executive director for Berkeley in 2012.

He is also the chair of the Berkeley Group remuneration committee.

Berkeley chairman Tony Pidgley said: “Glyn Barker has served on the board since 2012 and has built strong relationships with both management and the other non-executive directors.

“His knowledge of Berkeley, together with his broad and extensive experience in finance and as a business leader, make him ideally suited to succeed Sir John Armitt in this important role.”

He added: “I would like to thank Sir John for his significant contribution to Berkeley as senior independent director and deputy chairman.

“Sir John’s unrivalled experience in construction and infrastructure […] continue to be of significant value to the board and we are delighted that he has agreed to continue as a non-executive director.”

Sir John took over as chairman of the NIC in January this year after the shock resignation of Lord Adonis.
