Natasha Adams appointed new CEO of Tesco Ireland


Tesco has reportedly promoted current chief people office of its Republic of Ireland business, Natasha Adams, as the next chief executive of the supermarket giant’s Irish arm.

According to Retail Week, Adams is set to succeed Kari Daniels as she steps down in April this year. The grocer said Daniels would be stepping down “after a varied and hugely successful career”.

Adams will also sit on the Big 4 grocer’s executive committee and will report directly to chief executive Ken Murphy.

She will begin her new position in spring, after spending over 24 years working across the HR and people function. As a result of this promotion, Emma Taylor will replace Adams as chief people officer.

The news comes as Tesco announced that it will be axing 1,600 jobs as it closes overnight roles across some of its stores.

The changes will see overnight stock replenishment being moved into the daytime across 36 large stores and 49 convenience stores. Petrol stations will also be converted to be pay-at-pump only during overnight hours at 36 stores.
