Sainsbury's appoints David Keens as non-exec director

SainsburyÂ’s has appointed former Next finance director David Keens as a non-executive director.

Due to join the board on 29 April, Keens will succeed Gary Hughes who will step down after ten years with the business at its AGM in July.

Commenting on the appointment David Tyler, Sainsbury's chairman, said: “We are delighted to welcome David Keens as a non-executive director. His deep retail experience and his knowledge of fast-moving consumer business are particularly relevant at a time when we are growing our own successful non-food ranges. This, together with his considerable skills in finance, makes him an ideal addition to our board."
