Tesco moves key UK director

Tesco yesterday said it has moved one of the senior executives tasked with delivering the firm’s £1bn turnaround plan in its home market. The grocer said its UK fresh food commercial director Andrew Yaxley would leave the post he has held for over two years to prepare for a new management role. Yaxley’s duties will be taken over by John Scouler, who is already the UK commercial director responsible for grocery, household goods, beers, wines, spirits, tobacco and petrol.
