Morrisons’ chief operating officer Trevor Strain to step down

British supermarket group Morrisons, which this month lost its status as the country’s fourth largest grocer to discounter Aldi, said on Tuesday chief operating officer Trevor Strain is to leave the business.

Strain joined Morrisons in 2009, having previously worked for market leader Tesco. He was considered by analysts as the favourite to succeed Morrisons’ veteran CEO David Potts but said he wanted a new challenge.

“If I am to take on a new challenge for the next few years then it would be better to make that change at the start of the Morrisons journey in private equity, and not in the middle of it,” Strain said.

The grocer’s chief executive David Potts said he was saddened by Strain’s decision to leave the business after 13 years, but wished him all the best in the future.

“Trevor has played a pivotal role in the turnaround of Morrisons and his contribution to the business over many years has been very significant,” he said.

“I have worked very closely with him since my first day at Morrisons and his ability to plan and execute complex change and progression at great pace has been invaluable.
