John Lewis appoints Helen Weir as group finance director

Weir, who will join John Lewis in April, has extensive retail experience having worked as finance director of B&Q between 1995-2000. She then spent a further four years working as group finance director at B&Q's parent company  Kingfisher.

At John Lewis, she will take over from Marisa Cassoni whose retirement was announced last year.

Charlie Mayfield, chairman of the John Lewis Partnership, said: “I'm delighted to welcome Helen to the Partnership as our Group Finance Director. Helen brings a wealth of both finance and retail experience and expertise and will be a great successor to Marisa, who has made an enormous contribution to the Partnership over the last six years.”

Weir left Lloyds Banking Group’s last year following a management shake-up ordered by Lloyds’s chief executive Antonio Horta Osorio.
