Sir Charlie Mayfield to take up BRC Chairmanship

The BRC is delighted to announce that Sir Charlie Mayfield will take the reins as chair of the trade association this autumn. Charlie will start his term of office as vice chair in May and then take over as chair when Sir Ian Cheshire stands down at the end of September after a two year term. Charlie is Chairman of the John Lewis Partnership who are longstanding members of the BRC.
 
Charlie Mayfield said: ‘I am very much looking forward to working with Ian for the next six months and then chairing the BRC as we continue to modernise and campaign on behalf of the whole industry. Building on the great work the BRC has led over recent years, it is critical that we continue to have a strong and effective trade association to galvanise retail employers and attract the very best new talent from across society into retail.’
 
Helen Dickinson, Director General, said: ‘We’re extremely pleased that Charlie is to become our new Chair. The experience and leadership he brings will be essential as we continue to represent retail at its best. At the same time, we owe a very large debt of thanks to Ian for his guidance, insight and support as our chair, during which time the BRC has undergone yet further transformation. 
 
We are especially grateful for Ian’s support for the retail industry’s business rates campaign which goes from strength to strength and I would like to add my personal thanks for his support in my first year as Director General.’
 
Sir Ian Cheshire said: ‘It will be a pleasure to hand the Chairmanship of the BRC to Charlie. We are living through a period of profound political and economic change and no one is better placed to take the BRC forward. I would like to pay tribute also to Rob Templeman who stands down as vice-chair. 
 
Rob has completed an additional term of office to support the BRC through a period of intensive change and his stewardship has been immensely valuable.’
 
Rob Templeman said: ‘It’s been a very great pleasure to have worked with Helen and Ian in this period of change for the BRC. From very strong foundations we have made great progress and I very much look forward to seeing the next stages of transformation with Charlie as chair.’
