Hannah Gibson appointed as new chief executive of Ocado Retail

Ocado Group has announced that Hannah Gibson has been appointed to the role of chief executive of Ocado Retail.

She has succeeded Mel Smith who was due to step down at the end of August.

Due to take up her position on 20 September, Gibson has worked with Ocado for more than ten years in a range of senior customer, commercial and technology roles.

She is currently chief product officer for Ocado Technology where she sets the strategy and drives forward the Ocado Smart Platform for Ocado Group’s partners, including Ocado Retail.

Prior to the launch of Ocado Retail as a joint venture with M&S in 2019, she was head of the Ocado Zoom delivery service and was also previously head of product and merchandising on the Ocado Retail leadership team.

Tim Steiner, chairman of Ocado Retail, said: “Ocado Retail has big ambitions and, with its foundations now firmly in place, is well-prepared for faster growth in the years to come. I am confident that Hannah is the right leader to deliver on these ambitions, whilst also being able to navigate the nearer-term challenges associated with the macroeconomic environment.

“At Ocado Group, we have consistently benefited from her outstanding leadership and laser focus on the customer proposition, and I have no doubt that this will continue.”
