Kitchen and bedroom furniture specialist John Lewis of Hungerford has announced that its finance director, Karen Stanley, has decided to resign from the Board after six years.

John Lewis of Hungerford said that Karen’s decision was in order to pursue other, non-competing, opportunities, but will remain actively engaged in the business whilst a successor is recruited and will work with the Board to ensure a smooth handover of all responsibilities.

The company confirmed that the process of identifying a successor is currently underway.

Ken McNaught, chairman, commented: “I would like to thank Karen on behalf of the whole Board for the valuable contribution she has made to the business since joining in 2009. We wish her well in her future endeavours.”
