The finance director of John Lewis has died unexpectedly, aged 55.

Ian Alexander, who was also deputy chairman of the partnership, died on
Sunday of a haemorrhage of a major blood vessel.

deprived of a highly talented and committed colleague. We are all terribly
shocked and saddened by Ian’s sudden and unexpected death and our thoughts go
out to his family and his friends.’
