Capital & Regional appoints Laura Whyte as its non-executive director to take effect from December 1.


Capital & Regional, a UK shopping mall owner, announced on Thursday it had appointed Laura Whyte as its non-executive director to take effect from 1 December 2015.

Whyte, the company said, brought a wealth of experience from a long and successful career with John Lewis Partnership where she served in two separate roles on the John Lewis management board for over 10 years.

"Laura will join the audit and remuneration committees with effect from her appointment and will take over the chairmanship of the responsible business committee from Philip Newton when he steps down from the board at the 2016 AGM," the company said.

Capital & Regional chairman, John Clare, said he was pleased to welcome Whyte to the board. "Her significant retail, personnel and wider commercial experience will be of great value to the Company and I very much look forward to working with her," Clare said.
