Two Woolworths directors to retire

Christine Cross and David Mackay will not seek re-election at Woolworths Limited’s 2015 AGM and will retire ahead of that date.

Both Ms Cross and Mr Mackay joined the board in January 2012 as independent non-executive directors.

“Christine and David have brought considerable international retailing and FMCG experience to the Woolworths boardroom,” Woolworths Chairman Gordon Cairns said.

“Christine has had a distinguished retailing career in the UK and was an adviser to Woolworths before she joined the board. David was the chief executive and president of Kellogg Company before commencing a non-executive career.

“Both directors have heavy commitments here in Australia and overseas and they’ve decided it’s the time to stand aside to facilitate further board renewal.”

Woolworths has already informed the market of its intention to appoint new non-executive directors over the coming period and this process is continuing.

“The company is committed to ensuring a strong and diverse board with a mix of skills and relevant experience,” Mr Cairns said.
