77 Jan Marchant & Jon Bennett New

Buying director and online buying director for clothing, Tesco

Jan Marchant and Jon Bennett have been busy launching new initiatives at Tesco, notably to take on the young fashion market with the launch of an F&F diffusion range in May aimed at the younger 16 to 24-year-old market, called F&F Trend.

Bennett has been influential in trialling new ideas online, such as the launch of an exclusive collection created by east London designer DollHouse to take on partywear brands such as Rare and Lipsy.

The results? Clothing sales at the supermarket chain in the year to February 27 rose 7.3% to hit £1bn for the first time, driven by a 15% increase in kidswear and a strong performance online. Tesco’s full-year underlying pre-tax profit rose 10.1% to £3.4bn.

Non-food sales rose 6.2% to £13.1bn.
