House of Fraser poaches John Lewis IT chief

House of Fraser has appointed former John Lewis head of IT strategy Julian Burnett as its new chief information officer.

Burnett will join the business on October 5 and replaces Uday Kotla, who left HoF in August after just four months in the role.

Former chief information officer Pete Marsden has been acting as HoF CIO in the interim.

In his new role Burnett will have responsibility for the “continued development of technology led solutions across the business and the integration of business needs with IT strategy and delivery, in line with House of Fraser’s strategy to further develop its multichannel offer.”

Burnett worked at John Lewis for three years as head of IT strategy, architecture and business process unit. He was previously chief technology officer at Sainsbury’s for two years.

Nigel Oddy, chief executive of House of Fraser, said:
“Julian’s expertise and experience will be invaluable in delivering an IT strategy that further enhances and enables our growing multichannel proposition.”
