"I am very pleased that Richard will be joining our Board and then succeeding me as Chairman later in the year. I am sure that with his wide expertise, his board experience and his personal qualities he will contribute greatly to the future growth of the Group. Good management succession is very important to Tesco and this appointment is the result of a thorough process led by Patrick Cescau and endorsed by all members of the Board."
