SHAREHOLDER VIEWS: DO YOU BELIEVE ROSE SHOULD RELINQUISH THE EXECUTIVE CHAIRMAN ROLE?

<strong>JEANETTE CAWLEY</strong><br />&ldquo;Sir Stuart Rose does a fantastic job. I just don&rsquo;t think that having two separate people for chairman and chief executive would bring anything extra to the company, because he knows the business really well from top to bottom.&rdquo;<br /><strong><br />HAZEL HOARE</strong><br />&ldquo;As far as I&rsquo;m concerned they should get rid of him. I think the board and Marks &amp; Spencer should just get it over with. We already know he&rsquo;s going to go eventually, so if you&rsquo;re going, go. He&rsquo;s just creating instability by staying there.&rdquo;<br /><strong><br />IRSHAD AHMED KHAN</strong><br />&ldquo;Sir Stuart Rose is doing a great job and saving the business money. It&rsquo;s a lot of power for one man to wield, but he hasn&rsquo;t let us down. He&rsquo;s doing a great job and we&rsquo;re in safe hands. I believe M&amp;S are taking the steps forward to resolve it.&rdquo;<br /><br /><strong>AUDREY MONTGOMERY</strong><br />&ldquo;I think despite what I&rsquo;ve read he&rsquo;s not so bad. He did come in when it was necessary. The real problem is Louise Patten, who&rsquo;s incharge of remuneration. But no, Rose has really pulled socks up around the place, he&rsquo;s done a good job&rdquo;
