Banking chief to take over at John Lewis; ECONOMY TODAY RETAIL.
Helen Weir became chief executive of Lloyds' retail arm in 2008 but stood down in March in the wake of a boardroom reshuffle by new boss Antonio Horta-Osorio.
She will join the Waitrose retailer on April 1 and will formally take on the role of group finance director two months later, replacing Marisa Cassoni whose plan to retire was announced in September.
Weir was finance director of B&Q from 1995-2000 before spending a further four years in the same role at parent company Kingfisher.
