Marks & Spencer announces new Managing Director

for Clothing, Home & Beauty

 

Marks & Spencer announces that Jill McDonald, currently CEO at Halfords, has been appointed to the new role of Managing Director, Clothing, Home & Beauty. Jill's role will have overall profit and loss accountability for all aspects of the M&S non-Food business, from design and sourcing through to supply chain and logistics, and will report directly in to  M&S's CEO, Steve Rowe.

 

Jill will join M&S in the autumn, on a date to be confirmed, and will be part of the M&S Operating Committee, the team accountable for the day-to-day running of the business and the development and execution of strategy.

 

As a result of this appointment, M&S is also announcing a change of responsibility for CEO Steve Rowe, who will relinquish his Clothing, Home & Beauty accountabilities to Jill on her arrival, and for CFO Helen Weir, who will hand over responsibility for the Clothing, Home & Beauty Supply Chain & Logistics.  

 

Steve Rowe, M&S CEO, said: "I am pleased with the progress we have made in Clothing & Home over the last year and the time is now right for this appointment.

 

"Jill is an excellent addition to the M&S senior leadership team and we are delighted that she is joining us. Jill's first-class customer knowledge and great experience in running dynamic, high achieving teams make her exactly the right person to lead this all-important part of our business from recovery in to growth."

 

Jill McDonald said: "M&S has a unique, special relationship with its customers and I am very motivated by working closely with customers to drive and shape results. I have long been an M&S customer and professional fan, so working with the brand was a career opportunity that I just couldn't turn down. I am looking forward to joining Steve and the team later this year to build on the plans that are already underway."

 

M&S also announces today that, on Jill's arrival, Jo Jenkins will move to the new role of Clothing & Beauty Director, reporting into Jill, and with expanded accountabilities for all clothing across womenswear, menswear and kidswear.
