Sir Stephen Tindall, founder of The Warehouse, is taking a year’s leave of absence as the business marks its 35th anniversary.
He is taking leave because of workload from other commitments, including as chair of Team New Zealand. His leave of absence will be from now until October, 2018.
His spot on the group’s board will be covered by Robbie Tindall, who has acted as alternate director in previous times in place for Stephen Tindall.
“The Warehouse Group is currently well-led at a governance level by chair Joan Withers and the board, and at a Group level by CEO Nick Grayston and his team, and my confidence in this leadership and our strategy for the next 12 months and beyond makes it possible for me to take a leave of absence,” said Tindall.
