Marks and Spencer Group plc (M&S) announces that following on from the recent announcement of his appointment as Executive Director of General Merchandise, John Dixon has made some changes to the structure of his management team.

The new structure will realign responsibilities, ensure greater accountability and strengthen and improve the team.

As a result, the following appointments, reporting to John Dixon and effective by the end of March 2013, have been made:

Stephanie Chen is joining M&S as Director of Kidswear and Home. Stephanie has a proven track record in General Merchandise, with impressive retail credentials. Stephanie joins from House of Fraser, where she was most recently Executive Director across womenswear, fashion accessories and lingerie.

Scott Fyfe has been appointed Director of Menswear. Currently Trading Director of Womenswear Merchandising and Planning, Scott has over sixteen years of experience working for Marks & Spencer in a number of departments including menswear.

Consequently, Karl Doyle, currently Trading Director of Kidswear, will step down from his position in March 2013 to pursue opportunities outside the company. Damian Guha, currently Trading Director of Home, will continue to run the Home department until March 2013 when he will move to a new role at M&S.

John Dixon, Executive Director, said: “We are delighted to be attracting retailers like Stephanie to the General Merchandise team. Her skills and experience, combined with our considerable internal talent, will help to drive our clothing and home business forward.”

Marc Bolland, Chief Executive, said: “The appointments of Stephanie and Scott show that we are building a great team of key internal and external talent. With John and Belinda Earl, they will work together to improve our GM business.”
