John Lewis Partnership appoints Clare Swindell to board

The John Lewis Partnership has appointed former Tesco director Clare Swindell to its board as a non-executive director.

She has also become chair of the board’s audit and risk committee.

After stepping down as group audit director at Tesco in 2013, Swindell went on to become chief financial officer of the supermarket’s customer data analytics firm Dunnhumby. In 2017, she joined Camelot as chief financial officer and subsequently worked as co-chief executive until January 2024.

At The John Lewis Partnership, she has replaced former Hobbs chief executive Nicky Dulieu who stepped down in December after seven months in the role.

Sharon White, chairman of The John Lewis Partnership, said: “On behalf of the board, I’m delighted to welcome Clare Swindell. I know her broad range of skills and experience in leading retail and consumer businesses will be a real asset to the partnership.”

In a further move, the partnership has appointed Jane Hanson as an independent external member of the audit and risk committee. She has succeeded Sharon Fennessy who will leave board in April after eight years.
