LONDON — Burberry has named Andy Janowski to the newly created post of chief operations officer, reflecting the brand’s increased focus on its supply chain.

Janowski joined Burberry in 2006 as senior vice president, supply chain, and created a global team that transformed purchasing, manufacturing, sourcing and shipping, resulting in cost savings and reduced environmental impact and distribution processes, Burberry said.

Burberry’s wholesale sales in the third quarter grew 10.5 percent, due partly to earlier, more streamlined shipments and an ongoing strategy to deliver new ranges more frequently to customers. “In his three-and-a-half years with the company, Andy has strategically built, modernized and shaped a leading, world-class supply chain team,” said chief executive officer Angela Ahrendts.

Janowski, who reports to Ahrendts, joined Burberry from Gap and Banana Republic, where he was the senior vice-president, supply chain.
