UK: Tesco Europe head to "retire"
UK retail giant Tesco has suggested it is on the lookout for a successor to its European head Gordon Fryett amid reports he is to retire.
Fryett, who was appointed into the role last December, is reported to be retiring in around a year's time, according to The Financial Times.

"Whenever we recruit for senior leadership roles, it is good practice to benchmark internal talent against the external market."
Tesco reported a 6.8% fall in European first-half sales earlier this month, while clothing returned to growth thanks to "further investment in both price and quality".
