ROSE MULLS EARLY EXIT

MARKS & Spencer executive chairman Sir Stuart Rose yesterday said he was likely to leave the company before his expected departure date of July 2011 – although he has no plans for an exit this year. Rose, who will be succeeded as chief executive on 1 May by Marc Bolland, the former chief executive of Wm Morrison, said the M&S board had not yet started the search for a new chairman.
