UK: M&S director Charles Wilson leaves
Food and clothing retailer Marks and Spencer Group plc has today (Monday) announced the resignation of Charles Wilson, executive director for IT, logistics and property.
Wilson will leave Marks and Spencer on 28 October 2005 to join Booker Cash & Carry as chief executive.
He will not be replaced and his roles and responsibilities will be re-allocated in due course, the company said. The timing of his departure will allow Ian Dyson, group finance director, time to fully settle into his new role.
"Charles joined M&S to do a specific job, namely to help focus the business and
to deliver cash and cost improvements," said chief executive Stuart Rose. "He has delivered these and helped build a solid foundation for the company to go forward. Our priority now is to drive the business forward in the key areas of product, service and environment."
"We would like to thank Charles for his considerable contribution and wish him well for the future," Rose said.
