Convenience store retailer Alldays’ commercial director Paul Baxter has resigned, with no job to go to.
Baxter, who says he is considering a number of roles within retailing, will hand over responsibility for buying and marketing at the 800-strong chain to chief executive Colin Glass. He leaves on Friday.
Baxter says: “I am looking at a number of roles.” He does not expect Alldays to replace him.
He only took on marketing responsibilities when former marketing director Sue Wagstaffe resigned in June 1996, also without a job to go to. She headed a search for an agency last April to back expansion plans. The search was abandoned after her departure.
Under Baxter, the company picked M&C Saatchi to handle a reported 3m advertising offensive aimed at supporting an expansion to 1,000 stores by 2000.
