Former M&S executive Laura Wade-Gery joins John Lewis board

LONDON (Reuters) - Laura Wade-Gery, a former senior director of Marks & Spencer (MKS.L), has joined rival British retailer the John Lewis Partnership [JLP.UL], it said on Friday.

Wade-Gery was executive director, multi-channel, at M&S but went on maternity leave in August 2015 and did not return. She officially left M&S in September last year after five years at the firm.

She has also worked for Tesco (TSCO.L), Britain’s biggest retailer.

“She​ ​will​ ​build​ ​on​ ​the​ ​strength​ ​and​ ​depth​ ​of​ ​the​ ​John​ ​Lewis​ ​Partnership​ ​board,” said Chairman Charlie Mayfield.

John Lewis owns the department store chain of the same name and upmarket supermarket Waitrose.
