Mark Steel Argos

Sainsbury’s Argos executives Mark Steel and Gary Kibble are both leaving the business, Retail Week can reveal.

Argos’ digital director Steel and marketing director Kibble will step down in August as part of Sainsbury’s drive to better integrate the two businesses.

Steel has been at Argos since joining the business as a part-time worker in 1996 when he was still a student at Aston University.

He progressed to become an area manager, buyer and then trading manager, before taking on the role of head of product marketing in 2012.

Steel was digital operations director when Argos was acquired by Sainsbury’s in 2016. He was named digital director for Sainsbury’s Argos the following year.
