Wyevale appoints new HR director

Wyevale Garden Centres has appointed Lisa Cherry from WH Smith as human resources director and to the board of directors at the 141-centre chain.

She joins the company on 1 December from WH Smith, where she was head of HR for the travel head office and international businesses and the group head of learning and development.

Previously, she held senior human resources roles in WH Smith and Sainsbury’s, with UK and international responsibilities including in Asia, Australia and the Middle East.  She has 15 years’ experience in retail head office and operational environments, having worked in store management and HR roles.

Wyevale chief executive officer Kevin Bradshaw said: "Lisa’s wealth of knowledge and experience in human resource development and learning will be an asset to us as we continue to recruit talented team members and invest in learning, training and mentoring programmes for our colleagues across the organisation.

"Her experience in the retail sector will help us to continue to attract some of the top candidates with experience at leading retailers."

Wyevale has installed WH Smith outlets into a number of its garden centres, including Bicester, this year.
