Tesco appoints new chief technology officer

The Tesco supermarket chain has appointed Guus Dekkers as its new chief technology officer.

He will succeed Edmond Mesrobian who is retiring from the business to return to his home city of Seattle with his family.

Dekkers has extensive experience of driving large scale technology transformations following an international career in advanced information technologies at Volkswagen, Johnson Controls Automotive Group, Siemens, Continental AG and most recently as chief information officer at Airbus.

In his new position, he will build on the work that Mesrobian has led over the last three years to strengthen Tesco’s technology and digital capabilities.

Dave Lewis, Tesco group chief executive, said: “I’m delighted that Guus will be joining Tesco. He brings extremely strong expertise in driving large scale IT transformations, which will help us build on the progress we’ve been making to transform our business over the last three years.”

Commenting on Mesrobian’s decision to step down, he added: “I want to thank Edmond for all that he has done to build our technology capability and enhance our security and resilience since 2015. I completely understand Edmond’s desire to return home to Seattle and wish him and his family all the very best.”
