Redrow in board reshuffle

Housebuilder Redrow has launched a boardroom shake-up by naming a new deputy chairman and two non-executive directors. The reshuffle comes after the firm was taken back under the control of original founder Steve Morgan. Alan Jackson, who is already a director of several non-public firms and sits on the board of The Restaurant Group, has been named as non-executive deputy chairman. The firm has also hired Paul Hampden Smith and Debbie Hewitt as non-execs, replacing Denise Jagger, Malcolm King and Bob Bennett.
