Burke to vacate Majestic chair

26 January, 2010

Simon Burke is to step down as chairman of Majestic in August.

He will be replaced by Phil Wrigley, who was, until recently, chairman of the clothing retailer New Look – and before that was its chief executive.

He has also held senior management positions with Debenhams, Arcadia and BHS.

He is currently chairman of LXB Retail Properties.

Chief executive Steve Lewis said: “His broad retail and property experience will be invaluable in continuing to grow the Majestic story.”

Wrigley will join the Majestic board in April and take over the chair when Burke leaves at the next AGM.

Burke joined the Majestic board as non-executive director in 2000 and has been chairman since 2005.

Looking back to look forward

Wine is a liquid time capsule. Drinking older vintages not only recalls the weather conditions and winemaking styles of the past, it encourages us to reflect upon our own histories. Such reminiscence often inclines towards romanticised nostalgia. Especially after the second bottle. But looking back is a great way of learning about the future.
