- Christian charity IBS-STL UK has put its
Wesley Owen catalogue/retail division, along
with wholesale business STL Distribution and
publisher Authentic Media, up for sale.
According to The Bookseller, the
charity “has experienced a succession of financial
problems including the failed implementation of a new computer
system in October last year”.
Marks & Spencer investors have responded
favourably to the appointment of Morrisons
chief executive Marc Bolland as chief executive of M&S
according to The Guardian. Bolland
will succeed Sir Stuart Rose as M&S chief exec early next year,
though Rose will remain chairman.
