Wade-Gery was executive director, multi-channel, at M&S but went on maternity leave in August 2015 and did not return. She officially left M&S in September last year after five years at the firm. She has also worked for Tesco <TSCO.L>, Britain’s biggest retailer. “She​ ​will​ ​build​ ​on​ ​the​ ​strength​ ​and​ ​depth​ ​of​ ​the​ ​John​ ​Lewis​ ​Partnership​ ​board,” said Chairman Charlie Mayfield. John Lewis owns the department store chain of the same name and upmarket supermarket Waitrose.
