Sanderson Design Group PLC (AIM: SDG), the luxury interior design and furnishings group, announces the appointment of two independent Non-Executive Directors, Juliette Stacey and Patrick Lewis, to broaden the Board's consumer, retail and commercial experience whilst strengthening the Company's governance for the next stage of development of the business.

Patrick was, until last year, an executive and Board director of John Lewis Partnership ("JLP"), where he gained extensive consumer and retail experience. He joined JLP in 1994 and held managerial roles across the business before becoming CFO in 2015. Patrick's early career was at the management consultant Bain & Company followed by a move into industry at Procter & Gamble, the consumer brands business.

As previously announced, Vijay Thakrar, who currently chairs the Audit Committee, will step down from the Board on 27 November 2021, and Juliette will become Chair of the Audit Committee.

In addition to chairing the Audit Committee, Juliette will join the Nomination Committee and the Remuneration Committee. Patrick will join the Audit, Nomination and Remuneration Committees.
