John Lewis appoints new executive director for people, Lisa Cherry

The John Lewis Partnership has announced the appointment of Lisa Cherry as its executive director for people.

Starting September, Cherry will be joining the Partnership from the Post Office, where she is currently serving as group chief people officer.

She has also previously worked in senior roles within Sainsbury’s, WHSmith and Wyevale Garden Centres. Cherry’s early career was spent in customer facing operational roles before joining the Sainsbury’s Graduate Scheme.

Cherry will be tasked with developing and delivering the people strategy for the Partnership’s partners, with a proposition that rewards and develops their position.

“I’m honoured to be joining the Partnership at such an important time,” said Cherry, in a release. “I’m really looking forward to leading the People team and spending time with Partners to properly understand the organisation and build on the existing plans to help shape the future.”

She will be succeeding Nikki Humphery, who will be leaving the company to rejoin Virgin as the group’s chief people officer.

Nikki Humphrey said: “It’s been a difficult decision to leave the Partnership, which is a special purpose-led organisation. I’m proud of the People Team’s recent achievements, such as paying the Real Living Wage nationwide and providing market leading six-months equal parental leave. But the opportunity to rejoin the Virgin family was too good to miss.”
