UK grocery operator Morrisons has made a series of board changes today (10 March) following non-executive director Brian Flanagan’s decision to step down.

The company announced that Nigel Robertson will become senior independent director, Johanna Waterous will be chair of the board’s remuneration committee and Penny Hughes will become chair of the board’s corporate compliance and responsibility committee.

Robertson joined the board in 2005 and has served as a member of audit remuneration and nomination committees, and has been chair of the corporate compliance and responsibility committee since 2009.

Waterous joined the board in February 2010 and has served as a member of the audit, remuneration, nomination and corporate compliance and responsibility committees of the board.

Hughes joined the board in January 2010 and has served as a member of the audit, remuneration and nomination committees of the board.

“Following the changes now announced and on Mark Gunter stepping down from the board also at the 2011 AGM, as announced on 31 January 2011, the board of Morrisons will comprise an independent non-executive chairman, two executive directors, a senior independent director and three further independent non-executive directors, each chairing one of the board’s standing committees”, said chairman Sir Ian Gibson.

“I am sure that Nigel, Johanna, Penny and Phil will continue to bring their wealth of experience and knowledge to our Board in the key positions which they now occupy.”
