John Rogers, CEO of Sainsbury's Argos, is leaving the business to become Chief Financial Officer of WPP PLC. John will leave the business on 31st October 2019. 

Argos's retail and logistics teams will report into Simon Roberts, Retail and Operations Director and Argos's commercial team will report into Paul Mills-Hicks, Commercial Director. There are no additional changes to the Operating Board as a result of this move. 

Mike Coupe, Chief Executive Officer, said:

John Rogers said:

"I have thoroughly enjoyed my time working at Sainsbury's over the last fourteen 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."
