Marks & Spencer’s hiring spree continues with the news it has appointed a finance chief for its food arm as it continues its turnaround efforts.

The retailer appointed former N Brown executive Craig Lovelace to the role at the end of last month, although his start date has yet to be confirmed according to The Telegraph.

Lovelace replaced Nick Hewitt, whose departure was announced earlier in the week.

The appointment is the latest in a string of hires being made by M&S as it continues to battle to boost its fortunes following a number of years of tough trading.
