Brittin, who became Google’s director of UK operations in March 2009 following the promotion of Dennis Woodside to VP of US operations, will join Sainsbury’s as a non-executive director.

Sainsbury’s chairman David Tyler said Brittin’s skills would complement those existing on the board.

Brittin joined Google in January 2007 to run its direct sales arm and worked alongside Mark Howe, country sales director for agencies, to grow the UK business and consolidate its position as Google’s second-largest market.
