Carolyn McCall steps down from board of Tesco

Thursday, April 10, 2008

Carolyn McCall, Chief Executive of Guardian Media Group plc (GMG), has today announced that she has resigned as a non-executive director of Tesco plc.

McCall has taken the step to avoid a conflict of interest following Tesco’s decision to pursue legal action against the Guardian newspaper.

Carolyn McCall said: “It is with regret that I have decided to resign from the Tesco board, but given the clear conflict of interest it would be inappropriate for me to continue in the role.”
