Bunnings' Managing Director John Gillam will now move on to an advisory role.

John Gillam relinquishes management of Bunnings. After twelve years in this position, the Managing Director will now move on to an advisory role. The Australian parent group Wesfarmers announced that Gillam will continue to chair the Bunnings Group Council, which was set up at the time of the Homebase acquisition to coordinate Bunnings activity across all markets, and will also join the Bunnings United Kingdom and Ireland advisory board.

Bunnings Australia and New Zealand Managing Director Mike Schneider and Bunnings United Kingdom and Ireland Managing Director Peter (PJ) Davis will now report directly to Wesfarmers Managing Director Richard Goyder.

"Before we acquired Homebase we spent many months bedding down a new Bunnings management structure," explains Goyder, regarding the background to the personnel issue. "That structure, which has now been in place for almost a year, is serving the business well and we look forward to John's ongoing contribution in his new more flexible advisory role."
