John Lewis drafts in former Hobbs boss to board

Nicky Dulieu

John Lewis Partnership has appointed former Hobbs chief executive Nicky Dulieu as a non-executive director.

The partnership, which owns Waitrose as well as John Lewis department stores, said Dulieu, who will chair the audit and risk committee, would bring “a strong retail background” to the role, having spent 23 years at Marks & Spencer before running Hobbs between 2008 and 2014.
