Rebecca Shelley, corporate affairs director at Tesco, will leave the business in February after nearly four years at the retailer.
Shelley joined Tesco in May 2012 and helped communicate the retailer’s turnaround plans which “were particularly challenging given the significant changes facing the business.”
She leaves the retailer to explore new opportunities in “both executive and non-executive positions”. During her time at Tesco, she focused on projecting the business’ brand on three core areas: creating employment opportunities, eating and living healthier and pioneering an approach to corporate waste.
She was previously a partner at Brunswick.
Dave Lewis, Tesco Group CEO, said: “I am extremely grateful to Rebecca for the support and counsel she has given me since I joined Tesco. Since joining the business, Rebecca has led the Group Communications team with distinction at a time of great change for Tesco. I know her colleagues on our Executive Committee and in her own team will miss her energy and good humour. I’d like to wish her every success for the future.”
The hunt for Shelley’s replacement is now underway.
