UK’s John Lewis appoints Dino Rocos as ops director

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."
