Sainsbury’s appoints new non-executive directors
Sainsbury’s has appointed Keith Weed and Tanuj Kapilashrami as non-executive directors.
Both will join the supermarket’s board on 1 July.
Weed previously spent 36 years working with Unilever where he was chief marketing and communications officer until 2019. He also has experience of leading other parts of Unilever’s businesses including working as a key supplier to Sainsbury’s.
Meanwhile, Kapilashrami is currently group head of HR at Standard Chartered Bank and previously worked with HSBC in global and regional HR roles.
Martin Scicluna, chairman of Sainsbury’s, said: “I am delighted to welcome Keith and Tanuj as non-executive directors.
“Keith is an exceptionally capable marketing and digital leader who has championed new ways of integrating sustainability into business and building brands with purpose. He will play an important role as we focus on helping our customers to live well for less.
“Tanuj is a thoughtful and energetic HR leader who has significant international insights. She will be an excellent addition to the board as we continue to adapt our business and support our colleagues in a rapidly changing marketplace.”
Sainsbury’s announced back in October that Matt Brittin and Jean Tomlin would be relinquishing their roles as non-executive directors this year. Today, the supermarket confirmed that they would both be stepping down at its AGM on 2 July.
Scicluna added: “I would also like to thank Matt and Jean for their excellent contributions to the business. Matt has been on the Board for nine years and Jean for more than seven. I am very grateful to them both and wish them all the best for the future.”
