Anna Ford to step down from board of Sainsbury's

GENERAL MERCHANDISE

Anna Ford to step down from board of Sainsbury's

The former BBC newsreader, who headed up the supermarket’s corporate social responsibility committee, will leave in December after six years in the role.

Ford said: "I have thoroughly enjoyed my time on the Sainsbury's Board, and in particular the opportunity to serve as Chairman of the CR Committee since January 2007.  It has been a pleasure to have been part of one of the UK's most successful companies and I leave knowing that Sainsbury's is not only well positioned for further success, but that it has an outstanding reputation for sustainability, demonstrating the value of values."

David Tyler, chairman of J Sainsbury, added: "I would like to thank Anna for her outstanding contribution since her appointment in May 2006, both as a valued member of the Board and as Chairman of our Corporate Responsibility Committee.  During her tenure, Corporate Responsibility has become an integral part of the Company's business and is key to achieving our vision to be the most trusted retailer where people love to work and shop.  We have benefited tremendously from Anna's broad experience and skills."

Sainsbury’s said it will conduct a search for a new non-executive director to replace Ford after her departure.
