Nichols plc (the 'Company'), the soft drinks Group, is pleased to announce the appointment of James Nichols to the Board as a Non-Executive Director with immediate effect.

James currently holds the position of Commercial Controller at Vimto Out of Home and has worked within the business for 16 years.

In accordance with the Relationship Agreement John Nichols, the Chairman of the Company and father of James Nichols, is also nominated as a Family Representative Director.
