M&S procurement head to join John Lewis

UK department store group John Lewis has appointed Marks & Spencer's head of procurement, Roger Davies, as its group procurement director after nearly a decade with the retailer.

UK department store group John Lewis has appointed Marks & Spencer’s head of procurement, Roger Davies, as its group procurement director after nearly a decade with the retailer.

Davies, who has worked at Marks & Spencer for eight years, will take up the role this summer. Prior to his time at M&S, he worked at British Airways in a variety of leadership roles including property, IT and services procurement.

“Roger joins us with a wealth of knowledge in both retail and procurement, and I look forward to working with him to grow the value procurement can offer the Partnership,” said Patrick Lewis, group finance director of the John Lewis Partnership.

In his current role at M&S, Davies has been leading the move to full end-to-end procurement across the retail group with the development of organisation, capability, process and governance to achieve “best in class procurement.”

The appointment follows that of Andrew Murphy as the John Lewis Partnership’s new chief information officer and Ed Connolly to the new role of partnership strategy director in December last year.

Marks & Spencer, which recently announced more store closures as part of its modernisation plan, has not yet announced his replacement.
