He has spent 18 years in chief financial officer roles at Reckitt Benckiser Group for seven years and Smith & Nephew as well as Invensys.
Prior to this, he spent 18 years at GlaxoSmithKline working in both finance and operations.
Hennah was previously non-executive director and chair of the audit committee at RELX. He stepped down from the board last year having completed nine years of service.
“I am confident he will bring fresh thinking to our board as we deliver against our plan,” Sainsbury’s chairman Martin Scicluna said.
