The news follows the partnership’s announcement last year that David Barclay and Baroness Hogg would be stepping down from their non-executive director roles this month. However, Baroness Hogg has agreed to remain on the board for a further six months to provide continuity, and will now retire in September.
Sir Charlie Mayfield, chairman of the John Lewis Partnership, said: “I would like to thank David for the hugely important contribution he has made to the Partnership and would like to thank Sarah for being willing to extend her term as a non-executive director to ensure a smooth transition for our new directors and the board.
“I am delighted that Denis and Keith have agreed to join the board. They have a wealth of experience to bring to the Partnership and I very much look forward to working with them.”
