Argos has appointed Gary Kibble as its new marketing director, poaching him from Mothercare where he held a similar role for almost two years.
Kibble will join the Sainsbury’s-owned retailer in the next few months, and will report to Bertrand Bodson, chief digital and marketing officer and be a member of the Sainsbury’s Argos management board.
Before his time as Mothercare’s global brand and marketing director, Kibble was at online retailer Shop Direct for over 10 years in senior marketing and brand roles, including most recently as group retail brand director.
Kibble began his career in 1994 at WH Smith, where he joined as a graduate trainee and spent 10 years, working his way up to the business director for books role.
“I am delighted to welcome Gary to the team,” Bodson said.
“He is a first-class marketing professional whose strong digital and business transformation experience will be a great asset to us as we grow the business and integrate with Sainsbury’s.”
