Two more non-executive directors leave Tesco board

A further two non-executive directors will step down from the Tesco board next month in the wake of the £263m accounting scandal.

Ken Hanna, chairman of the troubled supermarket chain’s audit committee, will step down at the firm’s annual shareholders’ meeting on June 26. Hanna joined the board in 2009 and became chairman of the audit committee in October 2012.

He will be replaced by former BP finance director Byron Grote, who joined Tesco’s board this month.

Former chief executive of glass producer Pilkington Stuart Chambers, who has sat on Tesco’s board since 2012, will step down at the same time.

The move follows the departure of non-executive directors Patrick Cescau, Liv Garfield and Jacqueline Tammenoms Bakker who have all left since February.

Deanna Oppenheimer is the only non-executive remaining from Phil Clarke’s time at the helm, having joined the board in September 2013. Clarke was replaced by Dave Lewis as chief executive last autumn.
