The Group HR and Communications Director at Morrisons has announced he will step down from his role at the end of June.

Norman Pickavance will leave the supermarket retailer to “pursue opportunities elsewhere,” but will continue his work as a non-executive director at Create, a social enterprise which helps support homeless and disadvantaged people back into work.

Pickavance joined the company in July 2007 from Northern Foods, with previous roles including Vice President of HR at Marconi and global HR Director at financial services firm Perot Systems.

Dalton Philips, chief executive of Morrisons, says: “Norman has been pivotal in making Morrisons an award winning employer.

“He has transformed our HR function and has been a great advocate for developing people from all backgrounds across the business.”
