Tesco has appointed Catherine Friend as an assistant buyer on its wine team.
Friend, who joins Tesco from the Norfolk-based department store Jarrold where she was also an assistant buyer, will be responsible for the fortified, Portuguese and wine-gift categories.
Tesco has also named Nick Hood as quality manager for BWS, a new role for the retailer. Hood was previously on the wine-by-the-case team.
Alain Guilpain, UK & group wine category manager, said: “We have a fantastic group of people behind both buying and sourcing our wines and as customers continue to look for great quality and value, we are better placed than ever to deliver it.”
UK & global category product development manager Laura Jewell MW added: “Nick will be taking up a newly created position within the Tesco wine team. It is a key role that will focus around ongoing quality improvement with a strong customer focus.”
