Stephen Langford will be returning to Marks & Spencer to head up eCommerce for its clothing and home division. The role eCommerce director reports to clothing & home managing director, Richard Price, who joins from Tesco in July. Simon Wood, who has been acting eCommerce director on an interim basis, will resume his prior role of head of operations at M&S.com once Langford joins next month.
M&S group chief executive Steve Rowe said in a memo to staff: “Stephen knows the M&S business, having worked as our first multichannel merchandising manager in 2006, and since then has broadened his experience of transformation at Tesco and latterly as vice-president at George.”
M&S has also announced that shoppers will be able to purchase 1600 essential clothing lines along with their groceries through M&S’s tie-up with online retailer Ocado.
