British upmarket department store John Lewis has appointed Dino Rocos as operations director. Rocos will be responsible for the distribution and merchandising functions.
Rocos will move to the board-level position on 2 August from his current role as director of distribution, which he has held since 2005. Previously Rocos had a number of roles with John Lewis including in selling and production, having joined the retailer in 1977.
"I am thrilled about this new opportunity. Distribution has seen a lot of change and innovation recently, not least with the opening of our semi-automated distribution centre in Magna Park," said Rocos. "I am looking forward to bringing distribution and merchandising closer together, a link that will deliver a number of benefits to our customers and our operation."
