Morrisons makes two promotions within executive team
Morrisons has promoted Trevor Strain to the position of chief operating officer and Michael Gleeson to the role of chief financial officer.
Strain currently works as Morrisons’ group chief finance and commercial officer and reports directly to chief executive David Potts. In his new role, he will be responsible for the supermarket’s commercial, manufacturing, supply chain, logistics, operations development, online and wholesale functions.
Meanwhile, Gleeson joined Morrisons in 2014 and is currently working as trading director with responsibility for ambient grocery, frozen, dairy, fuel and services. Prior to his current role, he was the company’s group financial controller and supermarkets finance director. His previous positions also include working with Tesco for 15 years in senior finance roles.
Potts said: “Trevor is a proven and outstanding business leader who has played a pivotal role in the ongoing Morrisons turnaround. Michael has extensive financial, commercial and retail experience, together with a first-class track record, and his appointment will further strengthen the executive team. Together, and as part of the wider Morrisons team, we will continue to build a broader, stronger Morrisons.”
