Bunzl plc, the international distribution and outsourcing Group, today announces

been appointed to the Board as Finance Director with effect from 1 January 2006.
He will replace David Williams who is retiring on 31 January 2006 after reaching
his normal retirement age and having served as a director for 14 years.

As also previously announced, Pat Dyer will be retiring from the Board on 31
December 2005 having been a non-executive director since 1993. He served as
Chairman until 1996 and thereafter was Deputy Chairman until June this year.

Peter Johnson will be joining the Board as a non-executive director on 1 January
2006. Having been Chief Executive of Inchcape plc since 1999, he will become
their Chairman next month. He is also a non-executive director of Wates Group

Commenting on these changes, Anthony Habgood, Chairman of Bunzl, said:

"I would like to thank David and Pat for the highly significant contributions
they have each made to Bunzl over many years. They both leave with our gratitude
and best wishes for the future. I would also like to welcome Brian and Peter to
the Board. Brian has had broad experience at Group level and has also played a
major role in developing our European business over the past decade. Peter has a
strong international background in distribution having been responsible for a
major transformation of Inchcape's performance in recent years. His experience
will be of great value as Bunzl continues to develop and expand."
