New CEO for Tesco

Charles Wilson to take over once merger complete

Tesco PLC has announced that Charles Wilson (pictured below left) will take over as CEO of Tesco’s retail and wholesale operations in the UK & ROI.

The move will take place once the merger with Booker Group plc – expected on 5 March 2018 – has been completed.


Until then, Matt Davies will continue in his role as CEO of UK & ROI. He will then offer support during the handover, and will leave the Group at the end of April 2018.

The £3.7bn merger with wholesaler Booker was announced a year ago, and it was approved by competition watchdogs at the end of 2017.
