John Lewis appoints Inglis as brand communications chief

John Lewis has appointed former Virgin marketer Craig Inglis to the new role of head of brand communications. He will be responsible for the John Lewis brand,
including advertising, and branch marketing at the department store chain.

He joins the company next month and will report to marketing director Gill Barr.

Inglis was previously sales and marketing director at Virgin Trains, but left the operating company after 10 years in November following the loss of its Cross Country network to Arriva in July.

He was subsequently linked with a number of other roles within Virgin Group including spearheading the launch of a pan-European hotel brand (MW December 13, 2007).
