Barratt board requests chairman John Alan resigns
Barratt chairman John Alan is to step down early at the end of next month, following allegations of inappropriate behaviour at his other chairmanship with retailer Tesco.
John Allan, who earlier this month admitted making an inappropriate comment to a Confederation of British Industry staff member, announced last week he would be standing down from his position as chair of Tesco in the wake of further allegations that he denies.
Barratt said it had not received any complaints about Allan during his tenure at the firm.
Jock Lennox, senior independent director, said: “The Board is grateful to John for his nine years of service to Barratt. He leaves the company in a strong financial and operational position, continuing to perform well in challenging market conditions.”
