Sainsbury’s confirms board change
Sainsbury’s has confirmed that Adrian Hennah is to be appointed as a non-executive director of the company on 1 April.
On the same date, he will also join the audit committee and nomination committee and take over as chair of the audit committee following the company’s AGM in July.
Martin Scicluna, chairman of Sainsbury’s, said: “I am delighted to welcome Adrian as a non-executive director and chair of the audit committee. As a highly accomplished CFO of three FTSE100 companies spanning 18 years, he has significant and varied expertise. Additionally, Adrian was a non-executive director and audit committee chair of another FTSE100 company for nine years and I am confident he will bring fresh thinking to our board as we deliver against our plan.”
Hennah will replace David Keens who is stepping down after six years on the board.
“Scicluna added: “I would like to thank David Keens for his six years of service. He has been a thoughtful and influential voice on the board and we are grateful for his significant contribution.”
Hennah previously spent 18 years in chief financial officer roles at three FTSE 100 companies. These included RB, Smith & Nephew and Invensys. Prior to that, he worked in a range of finance and operations roles at GSK.
