John Lewis chairman to step down
The John Lewis Partnership is seeking a new chairman following news that Sir Charlie Mayfield will step down as the Partnership’s fifth chairman during 2020.
His successor will be announced in the second half of 2019.
The John Lewis Partnership said the process for appointing Mayfield’s replacement will be overseen by a nominations committee comprising of two elected directors, two independent non-executive directors and the chairman. The committee is chaired by Keith Williams, the company’s deputy chairman.
Mayfield said: “Although my departure is still a considerable way off, the appointment of my successor is a key responsibility. It is for this reason I have decided to lay out the timetable now to enable an open and thorough process to select the next chairman of the Partnership.”
