Sainsbury’s IT and change director Angela Morrison is stepping down this summer after four years in the role.

She will be replaced by Rob Fraser, currently vice president of consumer, technology and transport at the Computer Science Corporation. He join the supermarket’s operating board as IT director this autumn.

Fraser previously spent a 10-year stint with high street chemist Boots, where he was group IT director. He has also worked for Marks & Spencer and Rank Xerox.

“Under Angela’s leadership, our IT function has undergone considerable change, including the successful in-sourcing of IT back into the company in 2006 and the creation of an IT platform to support the future growth of the business,” said Sainsbury’s chief executive Justin King.

“Rob brings many years of IT and retail experience to the role and he will be a great asset to Sainsbury’s and the company’s management team.”
