Board Retirements
 
23 February 2016 - InterContinental Hotels Group PLC ("IHG") [LON: IHG, NYSE: IHG (ADRs)] today announces that Non-Executive Directors, Jennifer Laing and Ying Yeh, will be retiring from the Board of IHG.

Patrick Cescau, Non-Executive Chairman of IHG, commented: "As long-standing Non-Executive Directors, Jennifer and Ying have shown great commitment and dedication to IHG. Jennifer's passion and drive in her role as Chairman of the Corporate Responsibility Committee has been instrumental to the success of the Group's responsible business agenda and Ying's insight into the Greater China region has proven invaluable in enabling us to succeed there. I would like to thank them for the important roles they have played in IHG's development over the last decade and wish them all the very best for the future.
