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.
