Inmarsat has appointed Pip McCrostie as a non-executive director. She joins on September 1 2016.

Inmarsat, the provider of global mobile satellite communications services, has appointed Pip McCrostie, as a non-executive director. She joins the board on 1 September 2016 and will become a member of the company’s audit committee.

A present member of the EY Global Executive, the organisation's highest management body, McCrostie brings years of experience in corporate finance and tax. In her eight-year leadership of TAS, the business has been transformed and moved from third position in the global market to number one. Pip retires from EY on 30th June 2016.

"We are delighted to welcome Pip to the board of directors" said Inmarsat's chairman Andrew Sukawaty.  "She brings with her a wealth of experience in managing a global growth business and in advising enterprises across a wide range of corporate issues, including M&A transactions.  Pip’s new perspective will add great depth and strength to our Board."

Pip McCrostie is a member of the Peterson Institute for International Economics board of directors and chairs its audit committee. She is a regular contributor on business issues to CNBC, Forbes.com, WSJ, Bloomberg and Reuters. 

The appointment of McCrostie continues Inmarsat’s plan to bring new non-executive members to the company’s board as longer-serving directors step down.  As previously announced, non-executive director Stephen Davidson will retire from the Board before the 2017 AGM.
