GENERAL MERCHANDISE

Asda's McKenna promoted to international role at Walmart

Asda’s chief operating officer Judith McKenna is being promoted to a strategy role at the international division of parent company Walmart.

McKenna will take up the position of executive vice president of strategy and international development in the US in April, reporting directly to Walmart CEO and president Doug McMillon.

Andy Clarke, chief executive of Asda, said: "Judith’s operational and finance experience mean she is perfectly placed to help shape the future of the international division in this role. She will help define international strategic growth, ensuring international markets work more effectively together across the company."

Following her departure, McKenna’s responsibilities at Asda will be split between three directors. Retail operations manager Mark Ibbotson will be promoted to the position of retail director where he will oversee retail and distribution operations, home shopping and click and collect. 

Karen Hubbard, who is currently responsible for retail development and in-store proposition, will expand her role to include multi-channel strategy and Asda Direct. 

Chief marketing officer Steve Smith will head up the supermarket’s financial services business. 

All of the management changes will take effect from Monday 28 January.
