New role at Argos will drive digital leadership

Published: 26 June 2014
Henrietta Baring has been appointed to the newly-created role of head of Argos, IT commercial and supply chain, reporting to IT director Mike Sackman.
Argos says the role is key to implementing the strategic vision for Argos to be a digital retail leader. Ms Baring has joined the business to help deliver the strategy of More Choice, Available Faster for customers by managing the integration of supply chain infrastructure and support customer-facing developments, such as those in digital stores, in collaboration with delivery partners.

She joins from Ardagh Group, where she led and delivered large-scale, capital-intensive and complex transformational programmes. Previously, she held similar roles across a variety of sectors in the UK and internationally.

Mike Sackman said Ms Baring's areas of focus would be "on systems that show real-time product availability and reduce lead times to customers, and systems that process millions of customer orders for local in-store pick-up or for home delivery".
