Marks & Spencer bolsters food team with new directors

Marks & Spencer has appointed four new food directors

Marks & Spencer has strengthened its food division with the appointment of four new directors ahead of its launch online with Ocado.

The four will report to M&S food commercial director George Wright, who arrived at the retailer from Tesco in April.

M&S food managing director Stuart Machin informed staff of the appointments in a note. He said: ”We’re making good progress on our food transformation, but we know this is just the first stage of a multi-year plan.”
