Sainsbury’s Argos has announced the appointment of Gary Kibble as its new marketing director.
He will join the retailer in the next few months and will report to Bertrand Bodson, chief digital and marketing officer.
Gary has been global brand & marketing director at Mothercare for nearly two years. He joined from Shop Direct,k where he spent over 10 years in senior marketing and brand roles, most recently as group retail brand director.
At Shop Direct he rebranded Littlewoods Direct and launched Very.co.uk, whilst introducing Trinny and Susannah and Myleene Klass as brand ambassadors for the Littlewoods brand, both of which led to increases in sales and brand equity.
Bertrand said: “I’m delighted to welcome Gary to the team. He is a first class marketing professional whose strong digital and business transformation experience will be a great asset to us as we grow the business and integrate with Sainsbury’s.”
Gary added: “I’m delighted to be joining the team. Argos has undergone significant digital transformation in the last three years, including the market-leading FastTrack delivery proposition. This, combined with the recent Sainsbury’s acquisition, makes it an exciting time to join the business.”
