Tesco’s clothing boss Jason Tarry promoted to head of commercial

Tesco’s clothing boss Jason Tarry has been appointed as group head of commercial as part of a senior management restructure.

The new role, which is effective from January 1, will be in addition to Tarry’s F&F responsibilities.

Amid the changes Dave Lewis group chief executive will, on a temporary basis, take over the day-to-day running of the UK operation.

Former head of UK Chris Bush was suspended in the wake of the recent accounting scandal and is understood to have left the business. Another of the suspended executives, sourcing head Matt Simister, has been reinstated.

Robin Terrell interim multichannel director has now become Tesco’s head of customer.

Benny Higgins will take on responsibility for group strategy as well as leading the bank and international financial services business, while chief customer officer Jill Easterbrook will lead the business transformation programme.

Tesco said the changes to the team means it no longer needs Matt Atkinson’s role of chief creative officer and David Hobbs’ position of group business planning and strategy director.

Last week it was reported that three of the eight to be suspended due to the accounting scandal had have already left the business: Carl Rogberg, UK finance director; John Scouler, food commercial director; and Kevin Grace, group commercial director.

It is not known if William Linnane, director of impulse purchases, Dan Jago, director of beers and wines, or Sean McCurley, director of convenience, will rejoin the business after also being suspended.
