Britain's M&S appoints Halfords boss to run clothing division

LONDON, May 3 (Reuters) - Marks & Spencer said it had appointed Jill McDonald, the boss of Britain's largest bike seller Halfords, to run its clothing and home business, freeing its chief executive Steve Rowe to focus on the overall group.

Rowe, CEO for just over a year, has recently seen some success after instigating the latest in a long line of recovery strategies for M&S's underperforming clothing and homewares business.

On Wednesday the company said he would relinquish his clothing, home and beauty accountabilities to McDonald, who will join the company in the autumn. (Reporting by Kate Holton, editing by James Davey)
