Sainsbury's has announced a number of key internal moves and promotions, demonstrating the strength and depth of its internal management team.

With effect from 19 March 2012 (the start of Sainsbury's new financial year):

Roger Burnley, previously Retail & Logistics Director, will take a new role as MD of General Merchandise, Clothing & Logistics, leading Sainsbury's growing non-food business whilst retaining responsibility for logistics.

Helen Buck, previously Convenience Director, becomes Retail Director responsible for performance across Sainsbury's supermarket estate. Helen led Sainsbury's convenience business to over 20% growth in the past 18 months, winning the Retail Industry Convenience Retailer of the Year Award in 2010 and 2011.

Simon Twigger, previously Fresh & Frozen Business Unit Director, becomes Convenience Business Unit Director. Simon has led our Fresh Food business over recent years. Convenience is a key part of our growth plans, with the business on track to deliver one to two new openings per week, this financial year.

All will report directly to Chief Executive Justin King, with Roger Burnley and Helen Buckalso continuing to serve on the Operating Board.

In a series of related moves a number of Sainsbury's divisional directors have taken on new responsibilities: Charlotte Rhodes will become Business Unit Director, Fresh Food (Produce, Bakery, Meat, Fish & Poultry and Counters); James Bailey is promoted to Business Unit Director, Fresh Food (Regional, Dairy, Frozen and Meal Solutions); Kevin Barrett will become Director of Space & Formats; and Dave King moves to lead our team in China, replaced by Richard Fleming as Logistics Director.

We are delighted to be able to develop our people in this way, as new perspectives and fresh ideas will drive sales and deliver the very best for our customers."
