John Lewis hires head of branch for new Birmingham flagship

John Lewis veteran Kim Lowe has been promoted to the role of head of branch at its new Birmingham flagship department store, set to open next year.

Lowe has worked at the department store business for 30 years, across a range of roles, including her first as a sales assistant in Nottingham.

Most recently she has been head of branch at John Lewis Glasgow. She is also an elected director of the JLP board.

Maggie Porteous, director of selling, north and new format, said: “Kim is perfectly placed to ensure John Lewis Birmingham delivers the excellent standards and service that our customers expect. She brings a breadth of experience as a leader and a fantastic track record of managing external relationships to this exciting and demanding role and I wish her every success.”

Lowe added: “I look forward to establishing our regional flagship shop in the heart of the city centre and in the heart of the local community. This appointment brings me back to the Midlands where I was born and where most of my family still live.”

John Lewis Birmingham will open in the autumn of 2014 and is part of the total re-development of New Street station
