Tesco's Terry Green replaced by Richard Jones

Tesco chief executive of clothing Terry Green has handed over the reins of the grocer’s UK fashion business to Tesco’s head of non-food Richard Jones.

According to the Financial Times, Green will continue to work on projects with Tesco but Jones will take up the running of the clothing business in the UK as well as looking after the retailer’s home and general merchandise offer.

Jones was previously head of non-food at rival Sainsbury’s and joined Tesco to oversee non-food in 2008. It is understood Green’s five-year contract with Tesco was approaching the end.

Tesco told the newspaper that it was “delighted” Green was going to work on projects for the retailer. “He has made a great contribution to the success of the business, including the launch of our online store last year.”

Green, who made his name turning around Debenhams in the late 1990s, nearly left Tesco in 2007 when he held talks with his friend Sir Stuart Rose about moving to Marks & Spencer.
