      CAMERON FORECOURT APPOINTS DAVID WILLIS AS CHAIRMAN


FUELLING solutions specialist Cameron Forecourt Limited has announced the
appointment of well-known industry figure David Willis as company chairman.


The appointment follows the untimely death in January of Tony Jenner, the founder
and chairman of Cameron Forecourt


David Willis has been associated with the petroleum marketing industry for over 45
years, firstly with Shell then as founder and CEO of Micrelec Group which developed
filling station management information and control systems.


He took Micrelec onto the London Stock Exchange having grown its turnover to £24
million with sales in mainland Europe, South Africa and Canada. After Micrelec was
acquired by Meggitt in 1992, he formed four companies one of which was
BusinessNet, a provider of internet connectivity and value added services to the
financial community in the City of London.


BusinessNet was subsequently acquired by an American new age telecoms
company and Willis took-over as managing director of Arciris in 2001. He grew sales
from £3m to £30m in four years, selling the business to Torex where he was
appointed CEO of the Petroleum & Convenience Store Division as well as Director of
Group Marketing. Willis left Torex in 2005 to concentrate on his other business
interests.


Upon his appointment with Cameron Forecourt, David Willis commented: “It’s a real
privilege to have been asked to lead the board of Cameron, a company whose
hallmark is quality, integrity and friendliness. The company has a highly experienced
and respected workforce and I believe it has tremendous potential in the markets it
serves.”
Barry Jenner, Managing Director, remarked: “My late father has known and worked
with David over the past 40 years, so we are delighted that he has agreed to join our
board as its chairman. He brings useful experience and will add materially to our
strategic thinking.”


The company remains in family ownership with both Barry Jenner and his brother
Keith, the company’s Financial Director, heading the day to day business.
