Sainsbury’s new chief executive tweaks senior team
Sainsbury’s new chief executive Simon Roberts has started his tenure by making two changes to the supermarket’s operating board.
Clo Moriarty, previously chief digital director, has been appointed to the new role of retail and digital director while chief marketing officer Mark Given has been promoted to the company’s operating board.
In a letter to Sainsbury’s staff, Roberts said: “As our customers’ lives have changed over the last two months, so have we. What I am most proud of is the way that we have constantly listened to our customers and quickly adapted to what they have told us.
“Bringing together our retail and digital teams under Clo’s leadership will create a business that shows up in the same way for customers wherever they shop with us. Mark’s appointment to the operating board will ensure that we really understand how customers are feeling, what they’re thinking and how this affects the way they shop.”
Moriarty has worked with Sainsbury’s for the last ten years. In her new role, she will take on additional responsibility for Sainsbury’s and Argos stores as the company looks to give customers a more integrated and seamless experience across both brands.
Meanwhile, Given has been with the company for seven years and has responsibility for all brand and customer communications across Sainsbury’s, Argos and Tu clothing. He is also accountable for the company’s Nectar business.
