The appointment will take effect from the conclusion of Intu’s AGM on 3 May 2019 with Millington becoming a member of Intu’s remuneration, audit and nomination and review committees.
Millington is currently a non-executive director of Equiniti Group and Atom Bank. She has previously held a number of senior digital and technology leadership roles across a variety of sectors, including retail and financial services, most recently as chief digital officer at Travis Perkins where she was responsible for designing and implementing the digital strategy across the group.
Prior to that, Millington was also chief digital officer and a member of the executive board at Waitrose and chief information and data officer at Asda. She has also previously held senior management roles at HBOS, Innogy and National Power.

She will bring her extensive and significant experience to the board in defining digital vision and strategy and will be instrumental in helping to drive Intu’s digital strategy, including data insight and analytics, in an environment where new technology is evolving rapidly and is a vital component of Intu’s winning destinations strategy.”
