M&S appoints Alex Freudmann as managing director of Food

(Sharecast News) - Marks & Spencer has appointed Alex Freudmann as the new managing director of its food division, succeeding Stuart Machin, who became group chief executive in May.
Freudmann, who is currently managing director of Australian beer and wine retailer Dan Murphy's, will join M&S on 1 November.

M&S said Freudmann has an extensive track record of leading change in some of the world's best food and drink retailers, including Tesco, Coles and Dan Murphy's. He joined Dan Murphy's, part of Endeavour Group, in January 2020 after 10 years as part of the Coles transformation team, latterly as Director of Fresh Food.

In his two-year tenure at Dan Murphy's, he has led significant changes, including a substantial shift to digital and online, M&S said.

Stuart Machin said: "Alex will bring a great deal of experience and passion to our business. He has worked in food retailing for nearly two decades and in all of his roles he's been a change-maker - bringing intellect, pace and energy. He will be a great addition to our top team as we work together to deliver the next stage of our transformation."
