Dame Clare Tickell and Michael Herlihy have been appointed as UK-based company, John Lewis Partnership’s, first independent directors. Reporting to the chairman, the new roles are designed to provide challenge to the partnership. Both roles are full-time and are in addition to the three non-executive directors that sit on the partnership board.

Dame Clare Tickell will join the partnership to take up her role from October 14, 2019. She is currently non-executive director at the National Audit Office, chair of the board at the Early Intervention Foundation, and a fellow of the RSA.

Michael Herlihy will begin his new role from February 3, 2020. He was appointed as partnership secretary and a member of the partnership’s executive team in April 2018. Michael joined the partnership from Smiths, where he was general counsel for almost ten years prior to which he spent 26 years at Imperial Chemical Industries including ten as general counsel. He has also held a variety of non-executive roles including that of senior independent director at Imperial Brands. He is a solicitor and graduate of Oxford University.

“I’m delighted with these appointments and the experience both Clare and Michael will bring to these roles. The independent directors are new roles formed as part of our review of the partnership’s governance structure. They are designed to provide a source of insight and challenge on the extent to which they are upholding the principles of the constitution. Free from operational responsibilities, the independent directors work on behalf of the chairman and trustees of the constitution, and will play a critical role in ensuring the integrity of the partnership,” Charlie Mayfield, chairman of the John Lewis Partnership said.
