Former KPMG regional head takes new role

Likewise Group plc, the AIM-listed distributor of floorcoverings and mattings, has appointed the former Midlands head of accountancy giant KPMG as an independent non-executive director.

Mike Steventon joins Likewise’s audit committee as chair, and also the remuneration committee, with immediate effect. He retired from KPMG in 2020 and has since taken a small number of non-executive and consultancy roles.

Tony Brewer, chief executive officer of Likewise, said: "We are very pleased that Mike is joining the board of Likewise. He has a wealth of experience in finance and industry, and his knowledge will be a huge benefit in working with the board to steer us through our growth aspirations, and for Likewise to achieve its goal to be a leader in the flooring industry." 

Mr Steventon has over 34 years' experience in the professional services industry at KPMG, rising to partner in 1998, with a focus on auditing international listed groups.

Based at new headquarters at Radial Park, Birmingham Business Park, Solihull, Likewise Group plc has grown rapidly since its launch in late 2018, with a series of acquisitions.

These have included William Armes Ltd and the trade and assets of Bruce Starke & Co Ltd, plus Lewis Abbott Ltd, Heatseam Ltd and H&V Carpets BVBA in 2019, and A&A Ltd in Manchester in 2020. The business listed on the UK’s Alternative Investment Market in August 2021.
