Smiths Group plc has announced the appointment of Srini Seshadri as the new Group Managing Director, Smiths Medical, effective 1 March 2006. He joins Smiths from GE Healthcare Technologies where, since 2004, he has been Chief Marketing Officer.

Srini Seshadri has served more than 20 years at GE, most of these within GE Healthcare. His roles have included top-level responsibility for its Services businesses in Europe, Middle East and Africa, and leadership of its global X-Ray business unit, including cardiovascular and radiography.

Born in India, Srini Seshadri is now a US citizen and, subject to completion of the necessary clearances, he and his family will relocate to London as soon as possible. He takes over from Einar Lindh who in July last year came out of retirement to lead Smiths Medical on an interim basis.

Keith Butler-Wheelhouse, Chief Executive of Smiths Group, said:

"I am delighted that we have recruited Srini to lead Smiths Medical. He brings a breadth of global business experience, deep knowledge of the medical devices industry and a track-record of successful acquisition integration. His strategic leadership skills will add further impetus to the successful development and growth of Smiths Medical. I also want to take this opportunity to thank Einar Lindh for his stewardship of the division in recent months and to wish him an active and happy retirement.

ENDS
