Sainsbury’s has announced that David Keens will join the company’s board as a non-executive director, with effect from 29 April.

The appointment follows the retirement of Gary Hughes who will depart on 8 July.

Previously group finance director at Next, Keens will join the Audit Committee and become its chairman.

Sainsbury’s chairman David Tyler says: “First, I would like to thank Gary very much for everything he has done for Sainsbury’s over the last ten years.  He has been a highly effective chairman of the Audit Committee and has made a very valuable contribution to the board.

“We are delighted to welcome David Keens as a non-executive director. His deep retail experience and his knowledge of fast-moving consumer business are particularly relevant at a time when we are growing our own successful non-food ranges. This, together with his considerable skills in finance, makes him an ideal addition to our board.”.
