Asda chair Andy Bond leaves

Asda chairman and former chief executive Andy Bond has stepped down from the role he took on last April.


He left his position on 1 January to focus on parent company Walmart’s acquisition of MassMart in South Africa.

Bond will also leave Walmart once the deal is completed, which is expected in March.

He became the supermarket’s part time chairman in April after chief operating officer Andy Clarke was named chief executive.

Clarke has introduced several initiatives to improve perceptions of the quality of its food including relaunching its mid-tier private label range under the “Chosen by You” brand name.

The relaunch has helped buoy its market share, which stabilised at 17% in November, following several months of decline, according to Kantar Worldpanel data.

Asda is second to market leader Tesco.
