Woolworths director Roger Jones dies

Roger Jones, non-executive director and former managing director of Woolworths, has died.

Roger Jones, who died yesterday, joined Woolworths in 1958 and became managing director in 1995 until 1998, when he retired.

In 2001, Roger Jones served as a non-executive director of Woolworths and chairman of the board's audit committee.

Woolworths chairman Richard North said: "Everyone at Woolworths is greatly saddened by this news. Roger was an integral part of Woolworths for many years, and his significant contribution to the business will be greatly missed. On behalf of the board and all of Roger's colleagues, I should like to extend my sympathy to his wife Joan and their family."
