White men are an 'endangered species' in British boardrooms, says Tesco boss

White men have become an “endangered species” at the top of British business, according to Tesco chairman John Allan.

Mr Allan, who earns £650,000 a year, is one of nine white men who sit on Tesco’s executive board. He took over the role from Sir Richard Broadbent, a white man, in 2015.
