Tesco hires former Reed Elsevier chief financial officer

Former Reed Elsevier chief financial officer Mark Armour has been hired by Tesco as a non-executive director.

A Tesco spokesperson said that Armour would bring "significant financial and international experience" to its board, including "considerable experience of digital business transition".

Armour is credited with playing a key role in the transformation of Elsevier from a broad-based traditional print publisher into a provider of online subscriptions and database products for professional business information.

He was employed by Reed Elsevier from 1995 to 2012.
