John Lewis Partnership appoints Nish Kankiwala to board
The John Lewis Partnership has appointed Nish Kankiwala as a non-executive director.
He will replace Laura Wade-Gery who is stepping down from the partnership board when her term ends on 30 April.
With over 40 years’ experience of working with retail and consumer brands, Kankiwala is currently chief executive of Hovis where he has led the transformation of the brand.
After starting his career at Unilever in a number of commercial and operational positions, he then moved to Pepsico where he became president of the soft drinks business in Europe and Africa. This was followed by a stint as president of Burger King International.
Sharon White, chairman of the John Lewis Partnership, said: “Nish is a fantastic appointment to the partnership board. He brings a wealth of experience in retail and fast moving consumer markets. He’s led well known global brands and ones with rich heritage and trust like the partnership.
“I’m incredibly grateful to Laura who has done a brilliant job since joining the board in 2017. Laura has made a significant contribution to the partnership and she leaves with our best wishes for the future.”
