LONDON — U.K. retailer Marks & Spencer disclosed a series of changes to its executive team’s responsibilities Monday, as part of the firm’s aim to “drive greater accountability and responsibility across the business,” the company said.
As part of the shifts, Laura Wade-Gery, currently executive director, multichannel at M&S, will additionally be responsible for U.K. retail. And in order to accelerate M&S’ global brand position, the company said, executives in M&S’ international business will now report to Patrick Bousquet-Chavanne, executive director, marketing and business development at M&S. Costas Antimissaris, business development director, has been appointed international director and reports to Bousquet-Chavanne. Meanwhile, Jan Heere, the current international director, is leaving M&S to return to Russia. Alan Stewart, chief finance officer, will be responsible for property as part of his financial asset management role. Hugo Adams, currently executive assistant to chief executive officer Marc Bolland, has been appointed property director, reporting to Stewart. The moves are effective immediately.
