John Lewis operations director to retire

Dino Rocos will retire from his role as operations director at John Lewis at the end of May, after more than four decades in the business. 

From the end of January, until he retires, Rocos will report directly to the group finance director, Patrick Lewis, and will lead the company’s ongoing work to ensure a future supply chain will be efficient, agile and resilient. 

His replacement at John Lewis is the company’s finance director, Bérangère Michel, who will take up the role at the end of this month.

Michel will assume responsibility for the end-to-end supply chain and the John Lewis & Partners store estate. 

A search is under way for a new finance director. In the interim, the role will be covered John Lewis head of finance Andy Mounsey. 

John Lewis managing director Paula Nickolds said: “I can’t over-emphasise the scale of the contribution Dino has made to John Lewis – he has transformed every element of our supply chain to create the distribution network we enjoy today. I am extremely grateful to him for his support and commitment to the partnership. Bérangère and Andy both bring a wealth of experience to their new roles and I wish them the very best of luck.”

  • The article states Dino has spent more than two decades at JL. He has actually spent 43 years at JL and in that time made an immeasurable contribution to the success of the business.

  • Agree with anonymous. He will be a real loss to the Group.
