Parsley Box, part of the Chroma Ventures investment portfolio, has today announced that three new independent non-executive directors will join the company’s board ahead of its admission to the London Stock Exchange.
Chris Britton, Hazel Cameron and Ana Stewart bring a wealth of complementary skills and experience that will help guide Parsley Box through this exciting new chapter in its story.
Chris Britton has significant experience – both at board level and as an investor – in a number of food and drink companies, including Ella's Kitchen, Graze and Findus Group, and until recently sat on the board of DS Smith Plc. He will join Parsley Box as the senior independent non-executive director.
Hazel Cameron has non-executive director experience across a range of business sizes, stages and sectors including TMT, retail, housebuilding, facilities management, pharmaceutical and biotechnology. Her career has primarily been in venture capital and private equity, where she has had a particular focus on strengthening boards and board functionality, working on strategy, mergers and acquisitions, preparing and positioning companies for fundraising and partial or full exit.
Ana Stewart is a creative entrepreneur with quoted board experience as chief executive officer of i-design Group – which she founded, floated onto AIM, and subsequently led the sale to Cardtronics Inc. – and a 25-year record in start-ups, venture capital funding, IPOs and exits. Her career spans entrepreneurial and corporate business environments across fin-tech and digital media industries with particular focus on product and business development and delivery, marketing and innovation.
Chris van der Kuyl, Parsley Box chairman and principal at Chroma Ventures, said:
"To help Parsley Box reach our growth ambitions we've strengthened and diversified our board with the appointment of these three new non-execs, each of whom brings significant expertise to the table. I’m delighted to welcome them onto the board.”
