years at Unilever plc and its group subsidiaries in a number of senior financial
roles across a number of different territories.

Ryan has a Bachelor's degree in Law and Italian from the University of Wales,

exceptional, proven track record in finance across Europe, as well as in leading
large finance departments for major organisations in CEE. He has an in-depth
knowledge of our target markets and joins Atrium at a key point in its history,
following a number of strategic acquisitions and disposals, which position us
strongly for further growth. I look forward to working alongside him at this
exciting time for our company."

"I would also like to take this opportunity to thank So?a for her hard work and
invaluable contribution over her ten years with Atrium. She has been a dedicated
member of our team and we wish her all the very best for the future."
