Management bodies

Our top level of management includes the Chairman and the Partnership Board, who are responsible for the overall strategic direction of the Partnership. The other Partnership management body is the Chairman's Committee, while John Lewis, Waitrose and Partnership Services have their own Divisional Management Boards.

Chairman's Committee

The Chairman's Committee includes the Chairman and the appointed directors on the Partnership Board. The Partners' Counsellor also attends. The Chairman's Committee meets frequently as an informal committee to develop strategy, business plans and budgets and review major operational and management issues, financial results and forecasts and proposals for capital expenditure.

Divisional Management Boards

Day-to-day management and strategic direction of our divisions John Lewis, Waitrose and Partnership Services rest with the divisional Management Boards, who are accountable to the Chairman for performance, and are held to account internally by their own Divisional Councils.
