House of Fraser appoints chief people officer
The House of Fraser department store chain has appointed Michelle Maynard as chief people officer.
With 25 years’ experience of transformational change in customer focused organisations, Maynard has worked across a number of sectors at companies such as British Airways, Coca-Cola, the AA and Thomas Cook Group. She was also director of talent and organisational development at Aviva and, most recently, was chief people officer for Aviva France.
Leading the human resources team across House of Fraser, Maynard will report directly to House of Fraser chief executive Alex Williamson after he joins the business on 31 July. She will have responsibility for the entire HR function including internal communications.
Maynard will also take over the various HR functions for House of Fraser’s stores and offices which have been reporting on an interim basis into Peter Gross, chief operating officer, and Peter Hearsey, executive director, legal and property.
Frank Slevin, executive chairman of House of Fraser, said: “I am extremely pleased that someone with Michelle’s knowledge and experience is part of our executive team as we implement our five-year vision which will ensure the future success of our business.”
