Woolworths has appointed Holly Kramer and Siobhan McKenna as non-executive directors.
Woolworths announced its intention to appoint Kramer to the board in November. Kramer is a non-executive director of Nine Entertainment Corporation, Australia Post and AMP Limited and was previously the CEO of apparel retailer Best & Less and group managing director and chief of marketing at Telstra.
McKenna is a non-executive director of Ten Network Holdings, Nova Entertainment, the Australian Ballet, and is a trustee of the MCG Trust. She is a former Commissioner of the Australian Productivity Commission, a former chairman and board member of NBNCo, and a former partner of McKinsey & Company.
Chairman Gordon Cairns said: “Ms Kramer and Ms McKenna are experienced and accomplished in their areas of business and I am pleased to welcome their appointment to the Board. Their expertise will be invaluable to us, particularly during this challenging time.”
The appointments follow the resignation of Jayne Hrdlicka, current group CEO of Jetstar, from the board after five and a half years.
