BT has appointed Simon Lowth, previous finance director of BG Group, as its group finance director and executive board director.

Lowth will take up his position at BT on July 4, replacing Tony Chanmugam who announced his resignation last month.

“Simon brings a wealth of experience to BT, having served as CFO and a board director for a number of major international companies, and I’m thrilled he’s joining,” said Gavin Patterson, CEO of BT. 

“On top of his solid financial acumen, his strong organisational leadership and engineering experience at a number of leading infrastructure companies will be a real asset for BT.” 

In addition to being a CFO of BG Group, Lowth has also served on the boards of drugmaker AstraZeneca and utility group ScottishPower. He is presently a non-executive director at Standard Chartered.
