Supermarket giant Asda has announced two new appointments to strengthen its executive team.

GENERAL MERCHANDISE

Asda adds to its executive team

Ellie Doohan will join the  team with her current remit of general counsel. Karen Hubbard, currently operations director for Asda’s supermarkets division, will take on a new role as executive director of store proposition.

Doohan has been Asda’s general counsel and company secretary for the past four years. She is also chair of International Produce, a wholly owned subsidiary of Walmart responsible for sourcing fresh produce for Asda and other Walmart operations overseas.

Hubbard joined Asda in 2009 and has led the retailer’s move to create a sizable division of smaller Asda stores which it plans to grow to 180 by the end of 2011. She  also led the programme to transform the former Netto stores into Asda supermarkets which will complete on 14 November.

Commenting on the new appointments CEO Andy Clarke said: “Any successful business needs to combine the right blend of skills and experience and these changes will put us in an even stronger position to realise our strategic business goals."
