Travis Perkins has said it is making a number of changes to its board as part of its succession planning process.

Ruth Anderson is due to resign from the board on March 3 from her roles as chairman of the audit committee and member of the nominations and Stay Safe committees.

She will be replaced as chairman of the audit committee by non-executive director John Rogers.


“2020 marks Ruth’s ninth year with the company as a non-executive director. We thank Ruth for her dedicated service to the company and valuable contribution to the board since her appointment in 2011,” Travis Perkins chairman Stuart Chambers said.

In addition, Marianne Culver and Blair Illingworth have both been appointed to the company’s board as non-executive directors.

“We are delighted to welcome Marianne and Blair to the Travis Perkins team. They bring a broad range of skills and diverse experience, notably in the building products, distribution and logistics sectors,” Chambers added.

  1. Hi, a change is needed. Having bought a Kitchen from Wickes a 6 day fitting time has stretched we are now into week 20 and still waiting for it to be completed. Electrical work is not to industry standard. Perhaps more changes are needed.
