// Ex-BHS director Lennart Henningson handed a 5-year ban from UK company dictatorships

A former director of collapsed department store chain BHS, Lennart Henningson, has agreed to a five-year ban from company directorships across the UK.
The ban has been imposed by the Insolvency Service.
Henningson was a director at BHS and transferred £1.5 million from BHS to a Swedish firm the day after its board had discussed the appointment of administrators.
- Ex-BHS owner Dominic Chappell ordered to pay £9.5m to pension schemes
- 44% of BHS stores still empty since 2016 collapse
BHS collapsed in April 2016, leading to 11,000 job losses and a huge £571 pension deficit.
Henningson worked alongside Retail Acquisitions boss Dominic Chappell, who bought BHS for £1 from Sir Philip Green’s Arcadia Group in 2015.
In November, Chappell was handed a 10-year boardroom ban, and earlier this month, he was ordered to pay £9.5 million into BHS’s pension schemes.
In 2017, Green agreed a deal with regulators to hand over £363 million to cover the majority of the pension black hole.
