Omega Plc has appointed Andrew North as its new group sales and marketing director, with North set to take over the role at the end of 2018 following the departure of current director Simon Acres.

North spent close to 20 years working at Ikea in a range of positions including operations manager at the Leeds store, Lakeside store manager and retail manager for the Ikea Group.

He then became country manager for Ikea in Czech Republic, Hungary and Slovakia in 2007, before being named general manager and CEO of Ikea Saudi Arabia in 2012.

“Andrew is an experienced commercial leader and strategist who has successfully operated in retail at senior board level for over 10 years in roles that required both a customer and operational focus,” said CEO Simon Barber.

“He is a passionate and energetic multi-channel retailer who has vast knowledge of all aspects of retail operations, analytics and consumer behaviour.”

Barber added: “We are delighted to welcome Andrew to Omega. His appointment will further strengthen the board, bringing an additional skill set, and is another important step towards realising our ambitious retail sales growth plans for the business.”
