Vice President and Managing Director for Proctor & Gamble Northern Europe, Irwin Lee, is set to join Wm Morrison Supermarkets as a Non-Executive Director in September.

Lee, who is due to retire from the FMCG giant on August 30, is said to be looking forward to ‘making a contribution, as a member of the board, to the turnaround of the company’.

Morrisons Chairman Andrew Higginson said: “Irwin will bring his huge experience in the consumer goods industry, a deep understanding of the UK grocery market and an excellent track record of leadership at one of our largest suppliers.”
