New CEO for Ocado Retail to aid growth ambitions
Ocado Retail Limited today announces the appointment of Hannah Gibson to the role of CEO. Hannah will take up her position on 20th September.
Having spent more than 10 years at Ocado Group, Hannah brings extensive experience from a range of senior customer, commercial and technology roles. She is currently Chief Product Officer for Ocado Technology where she sets the strategy and drives forward the Ocado Smart Platform for Ocado Group’s partners, including Ocado Retail.
Prior to the launch of Ocado Retail as a joint venture with M&S in 2019, Hannah was Head of Ocado Zoom, the leading service delivering groceries in up to 60 minutes. Hannah took Ocado Zoom from concept to launch in two years and the service is now successfully expanding across the UK. Before this, she was Head of Product & Merchandising on the Ocado Retail leadership team.
Tim Steiner, Chairman of Ocado Retail, said: “Ocado Retail has big ambitions and, with its foundations now firmly in place, is well-prepared for faster growth in the years to come. I am confident that Hannah is the right leader to deliver on these ambitions, whilst also being able to navigate the nearer-term challenges associated with the macroeconomic environment. At Ocado Group, we have consistently benefited from her outstanding leadership and laser focus on the customer proposition, and I have no doubt that this will continue.”
