LTG announces appointment of Kath Kearney-Croft as new Chief Financial Officer

The Board of Learning Technologies Group plc (LTG), the provider of services and technologies for digital learning and talent management, is pleased to announce the appointment of Katharina (“Kath”) Kearney-Croft as Chief Financial Officer with immediate effect.

Kath was previously Interim CFO at SIG plc and has held a number of financial leadership roles through her career, including at The Vitec Group plc where she was Group Finance Director, Rexam plc and The BOC Group plc.

Neil Elton will be stepping down from the role of CFO to pursue other interests but will remain in a full-time advisory role until the end of the year and on the Board of Directors until 1 December 2021, at which time Kath will join the Board.

Andrew Brode, Chairman of LTG, commented:
“I am delighted to welcome Kath to LTG, bringing a strong depth of public company experience in senior finance roles from a range of diversified industries with operations across international markets. Kath’s appointment is a signal of the talent LTG is able to attract at the very senior levels as we look to capitalise on the value-creation opportunities from recent acquisitions.

“I would also like to thank Neil Elton for supporting LTG’s growth as CFO in his seven years in the role. In that time, LTG has dramatically expanded its revenue profile and international presence while reliably delivering returns for shareholders”.
