Morrisons revamps regional management team for its stores business

Morrisons has reshaped the management of its stores business with 15 new appointments to the regional management team that provides direction to more than 490 supermarkets.

This will include Vicki Reay, formerly of Aldi, becoming the new operations director for the South East region and the first female director of a region’s stores at Morrisons.

John McAlpine will take up the role of operations director for the North region after joining the business from Tesco where his most recent role was convenience director.

They will both report to Morrisons group retail director Gary Mills alongside current Morrisons operations directors Miles Foster and Darren Hunter.

Below them will sit a revamped team of regional managers who are a mixture of in-house talent and professionals from elsewhere in the supermarket sector.

The number of women at this level has risen from one to seven.

David Lepley, previously a regional and strategy director at Asda, will be also be joining the Morrisons stores leadership team.

Clare Grainger, Morrisons group people director, said: "We have appointed the most talented retail team on the market with the aim of the making core supermarkets strong again. We are also pleased that our retail management team is becoming more representative of our largely-female colleague and customer base."
