John Dixon, executive director of General Merchandise at UK based retailer M&S and who oversees the clothing and homewares section has decided to step down to pursue career opportunities outside of the company.

In a press release, M&S informed that he will step down from the board with immediate effect and leave the company on a yet to be agreed date.

Steve Rowe will take on the responsibility of John Dixon and Andy Adcock, currently trading director, Food, will step up to be director of food, reporting to Marc Bolland on an interim basis.

Steve Rowe has been with M&S for over 26 years, starting his career in store management and has significant experience in food, retail, general merchandise and ecommerce.

In his current role as executive director of Food, Steve has been instrumental in ensuring that M&S has maintained its specialist positioning and continued to outperform in a challenging market.

M&S chairman Robert Swannell said, “On behalf of the board, I would like to thank John for his service over many years and his many contributions to the business in that time.”

“I am delighted that Steve has been appointed to head up General Merchandise and wish him every success in his new role,” Swannel too added.

CEO Marc Bolland too said, “On behalf of the team and all our colleagues at M&S, I would like to thank John for his contribution to the business.”

“I am delighted to appoint Steve to the role of executive director, General Merchandise as he has outstanding experience working across the business and is well placed to take the business forward,” he observed.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed many happy and successful years at M&S and now have the opportunity to become a chief executive and so have resigned from the company,” John Dixon also said. (AR)
