Pippa Wicks To Leave John Lewis Partnership

Pippa Wicks John Lewis Partnership

Following a period of considerable transformation of the John Lewis brand, Pippa Wicks, Executive Director John Lewis, is leaving the Partnership. 

Pippa will be succeeded by Naomi Simcock - currently Retail Director, John Lewis - with immediate effect and on an interim basis. Naomi will lead the delivery of the 2023 plan and priorities for the brand.  

Sharon White, Chairman of the John Lewis Partnership, said: “I am very grateful for Pippa’s contribution to John Lewis. She has been instrumental in reinvigorating the brand, launching our successful ANYDAY entry range, refreshing the John Lewis own brand range and repositioning John Lewis ‘for all life’s moments’. Under Pippa’s stewardship John Lewis has reported record sales and was recently recognised as the UK’s best retail brand for customer service.”

Pippa said: “I am proud of the considerable transformational progress the highly talented John Lewis team has made over the past few years, especially given the difficulties caused by the pandemic. It has been a real privilege and honour to work for the Partnership, and help transform John Lewis which is one of the most respected brands in the country.”
