retail news in context, analysis with attitude

• The Financial Times reports that Tesco "is seeking to bolster its top-tier executives as it battles to turn round its UK business and grapples with problems in its overseas operations," and currently is looking for "a new chief executive for its operations in central Europe."

The story says that Tesco "is looking at both internal and external candidates to succeed Gordon Fryett, chief executive of Europe, who is set to retire in just more than a year."
