NSG Group Announces New President Building Products Worldwide and Chief Financial Officer
April 27, 2011

The NSG Group announced the appointment of Clemens Miller as the new president Building Products Worldwide. In this role, he will have full responsibility for all matters relating to the operation and performance of the company’s global Building Products business. Miller succeeds Mark Lyons, who has been appointed chief financial officer. A handover period begins immediately, with an effective completion date of June 29, 2011.

A German citizen, Miller will be based in Germany. He joined Pilkington in 1992 from the steel industry, has managed the Group's Fire Protection and Solar Energy businesses and was appointed managing director Building Products Europe in 2007. Since April 2010, he has been vice president of Commercial and Solar Energy Products. Miller has a doctorate in mechanical engineering from the University of Aachen, Germany.

In his new role, Lyons, who has been president Building Products Worldwide since 2007, replaces Mike Powell, who has decided to take up a senior appointment outside the Group. He will be responsible for all aspects of the work of the Group's finance function, including corporate, operational and business line finance.

Lyons will be based in the United Kingdom and Japan, reporting to Craig Naylor, president and chief executive officer NSG Group.

“Mark Lyons has led our Building Products business over the past four years. He brings to the job of CFO considerable experience in both finance and general management at a senior level within the glass industry, and is already well known in the financial community. His experience will be invaluable in the implementation of our Strategic Management Plan and beyond,” says Naylor. “I take this opportunity to thank Mike Powell for his strong contribution over 22 years with the company, and in particular for his leadership of the finance function over the past four and a half years. We wish him well in his future career.”
