STS board - John Evans

John Evans commented:
I am delighted to have been appointed Chairman of Securities Trust of Scotland.

It’s a positive period for STS with top quartile performance driving increased demand* and, with my colleagues on the Board, I look forward to contributing to the future of the company.

The board thanks Rachel Beagles for her commitment over the past nine years, serving the last three as Chairman. Rachel’s combination of talent, experience and energy has been incredibly valuable, and I believe that the company and its shareholders have benefitted greatly under her leadership.
