Rogers will leave the business on 31 October 2019 with Argos’s retail and logistics teams reporting to Simon Roberts, its retail and operations director. Argos’s commercial team will report to commercial director Paul Mills-Hicks.
Mike Coupe, chief executive officer, said: “John has worked alongside me for over 14 years and has made an outstanding contribution to the business. He leaves Sainsbury’s with our best wishes for the future.”
Rogers added: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my time working at Sainsbury’s over the last 14 years and, in particular, the last three years as CEO of Sainsbury’s Argos.
“The opportunity to work with WPP, however, was too good to miss and I look forward to being a part of WPP’s leadership team as it embarks on its new strategy for growth.”
