Marks & Spencer hires new non-executive director
Marks & Spencer has appointed Evelyn Bourke as a non-executive director.
Due to retire from her current role as chief executive of Bupa Group at the end of December, Bourke will join the M&S board on 1 February. She will also become part of the audit and nomination committees.
Prior to becoming Bupa’s chief executive five years ago, she spent three and a half years working as the company’s chief financial officer and has also previously held leadership roles at the Bank of Ireland, Standard Life and Friends Provident.
M&S chairman Archie Norman said: “I am delighted to welcome Evelyn to the board. She is extremely smart, has highly relevant experience and her appointment further strengthens and broadens the board, who remain closely engaged with the executive team.”
