Wickes owner Travis Perkins is making a number of changes to its board as part of its succession planning process.
Ruth Anderson will step down from the board on 3 March and thereby relinquish her roles as chairman of the audit committee and member of the nominations and Stay Safe committees. She will be replaced as chairman of the audit committee by non-executive director John Rogers.
Stuart Chambers, chairman of Travis Perkins, said: “2020 marks Ruth’s ninth year with the company as a non-executive director. We thank Ruth for her dedicated service to the company and valuable contribution to the board since her appointment in 2011.”
In addition, Marianne Culver and Blair Illingworth have both been appointed to the company’s board as non-executive directors and will also join the nominations committee.
Culver’s previous roles include chief executive of TNT in the UK and Ireland. More recently, she has been global president of RS Components, the components trading and distribution division of Electrocomponents.
Meanwhile, Illingworth has extensive executive and board experience in the building products sector having been a director of Marshalls, chief executive of Polypipe, and chief executive of Tarmac Building Products. He is currently chief executive of Stirling Industries.
Chambers added: “We are delighted to welcome Marianne and Blair to the Travis Perkins team. They bring a broad range of skills and diverse experience, notably in the building products, distribution and logistics sectors.”
