Woolworths marketing director Stephen Robertson is leaving the retailer at the end of the month after three years in the role. It is not thought that he has a job to go to.
The high street retailer is not planning to replace Robertson and his responsibilities have been handed to Woolworths’ head of brand communications, Tony Holdway.
Robertson, a former B&Q marketing director, was appointed to the retailer with a brief to revamp the marketing department, reinvigorate communications, drive multi-channel capability and re-invent its store formats strategy. He also appointed Bartle Bogle Hegarty to handle its £25m advertising account, which had been handled by Bates UK for 17 years.
