Marks & Spencer hires new digital chief

Marks & Spencer has appointed a new chief digital and data officer.

Jeremy Pee, who is currently a senior vice-president of Canadian retailer Loblaw Companies, will take up the newly created role in December.

Pee’s remit is to lead the retailer’s digital business strategy. M&S said he will be responsible for “leveraging data and digital operations for the benefit of M&S’s customers, colleagues and shareholders, as well as developing and embedding a modern digital mindset and culture across the business”.

The appointment follows a series of partnerships with technology companies Microsoft, Founders Factory, Decoded and True.

M&S chief executive Steve Rowe said: “Jeremy has first-class experience of leading and executing retail digital transformation, and growing a portfolio of ecommerce businesses.

”As we seek to become a digital-first retailer, grow market share, and change our digital behaviours, mindsets and culture, he is the right leader to deliver these changes and make M&S fit for the digital age.”

Pee said: “M&S is going through a critical transformation and there’s no better time to be joining the business.”
