Marks & Spencer reshuffles the pack to bring together website and buildings
British retailer Marks & Spencer yesterday announced that it would increase the responsibilities of the five key executives under chief executive Marc Bolland as part of a restructuring of its management team aimed at driving greater accountability.
As part of the reshuffle, M&S announced that its international director Jan Heere had quit and that multi-channel director Laura Wade Gery would now assume responsibility for UK retail as well as M&S.com.
The firm said its international business would now be overseen by Patrick Bousquet-Chavanne alongside his current responsibilities as executive director, marketing and business development.
“Everyone’s responsibilities have been enhanced and widened-out – part of a company drive to ensure there’s greater autonomy across the business,” said an M&S spokeswoman.
