UK: M&S names Lembregts supply chain director
Stein will focus purely on the retailer's IT development from January
Marks & Spencer (M&S) has appointed Dirk Lembregts as its director of supply chain as Darrell Stein moves to focus purely on the retailer's IT development and drive further growth.
Stein, who is currently director of logistics and IT, has split his role to concentrate on the role IT will play in delivering the company's strategic goals.
"It very much makes sense for us to do that because there is a huge focus on IT and our supply chain network over the next four or five years," a spokesperson for the company told just-style today (23 November).
The changes will take effect in January and both will report to CFO Alan Stewart.
"Darrell has done a tremendous job in driving the huge transformation in our supply chain over the past four years and will now focus on the major role IT will play in delivering our strategic goals. These include moving to a new web platform, IT-driven distribution centres and new systems in our GM business," a spokesperson added.
Lembregts has spent most of his career with car maker General Motors.
