Tesco has had a reshuffle of its senior international management team.

Paul Kennedy, CEO of ­Tesco's operations in Hungary, has been appointed inter­national formats ­director. He will drive the development of Tesco's formats in its international business, including its

c-store fascia Express.

A Tesco spokesman said the Express format was now operating in seven countries and there were plans to open more in Central Europe.

Kennedy will be ­replaced in Hungary by James ­McCann, who moves over from his role as CEO for Malay­sia. In turn, Chris Bush, who currently leads Tesco's operations and supply chain in Korea, replaces McCann in Malaysia.
