Morrisons names new group HR director

Lawson will join Morrisons in September from McKinsey & Company, where she is currently a partner and leads the Human Capital practice. She has also been the director of one of McKinsey's leadership development programmes and a leader of McKinsey's work on diversity, including the influential Women Matter report.

On joining Morrisons, Lawson will take a seat on the management board and will work closely with the interim group HR director Neal Austin to ensure a smooth handover.  

Dalton Philips, Morrisons chief executive, said: "Emily is a world class Human Resources practitioner and her role will be vital in our transformation of Morrisons into a multi-format, multi-channel retailer. Emily has fantastic experience working with organisations to ensure their colleagues deliver their strategy and I am confident she will encourage a similar collective purpose and passion at Morrisons."

As Morrisons expands its convenience store business and launches an online grocery service, Lawson will also be working on the continued development of its service culture.  

Lawson added: "I relish the opportunity of joining Morrisons at this exciting time for the business. Morrisons is one of the largest private sector employers in the UK and I am looking forward to working with colleagues across the business to build an environment where everyone can do their best work, deliver the excellent service for which the business is renowned, and support the communities in which the business operates."
