Sainsbury’s Argos announces the appointment of Gary Kibble as its new Marketing Director. Gary will join the company in the next few months. He will report to Bertrand Bodson, Chief Digital and Marketing Officer and be a member of the Sainsbury’s Argos Management Board.

Gary has been Global Brand & Marketing Director at Mothercare for nearly two years. Gary joined Mothercare from Shop Direct where he spent over 10 years in senior marketing and brand roles, including most recently as Group Retail Brand Director. At Shop Direct he re-branded Littlewoods Direct and launched Very.co.uk, whilst introducing Trinny and Susannah and Myleene Klass as brand ambassadors for the Littlewoods brand, both of which led to significant increases in sales and brand equity.

Gary began his career in 1994 at WH Smith, where he joined as a graduate trainee and spent 10 years, leaving as Business Director for Books.

Bertrand Bodson, Chief Digital and Marketing Officer, said: “I am delighted to welcome Gary to the team. He is a first-class marketing professional whose strong digital and business transformation experience will be a great asset to us as we grow the business and integrate with Sainsbury’s.”

Gary Kibble said: “I am delighted to be joining the team. Argos has undergone significant digital transformation in the last three years, including the market-leading FastTrack delivery proposition.   This, combined with the recent Sainsbury’s acquisition, makes it an exciting time to join the business. I am looking forward to meeting and working with all of Argos’s exceptional colleagues.”
