A search is under way for a new finance director. In the interim, the role will be covered John Lewis head of finance Andy Mounsey.
John Lewis managing director Paula Nickolds said: “I can’t over-emphasise the scale of the contribution Dino has made to John Lewis – he has transformed every element of our supply chain to create the distribution network we enjoy today. I am extremely grateful to him for his support and commitment to the partnership. Bérangère and Andy both bring a wealth of experience to their new roles and I wish them the very best of luck.”
