Mark Trevorrow, formerly operations controller at Budgens, replaces Garry Barr, who had been IT director at the retailer since last year.
Having joined Budgens in 1996 as a store support leader, Trevorrow has worked in various IT positions within the company. His new role, which will see him take charge of 20 staff, encompasses responsibility for IT operations and IT infrastructure.
Barr said Trevorrow's previous experience at Budgens should stand him in good stead. "With six years' experience at Budgens, Mark brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to his new role and he fully understands the requirements of the company and our rapidly developing business," he said.
