Gail Kelly and Patrick Allaway have resigned from the board of Woolworths Holdings. They had been re-elected as non-executive directors of the South Africa-based group in late 2018, prompting investors to speculate about the reason for their departure. Woolworths Holdings owns Australian department store chain David Jones, whose CEO David Thomas recently resigned for personal reasons. An investigation by law firm Ashurst had previously cleared him of a discrimination allegation.
