Marc Bolland exits Morrisons early

Marc Bolland, the would-be chief executive of Marks & Spencer, stepped down from his present role at Wm Morrison nearly two months earlier than expected.

As per many Morrison thought that Marc Bolland should not remain at the helm as he is moving to a major rival.

Earlier Morrison had said that Mr. Bolland would stay on until the end of January, but yesterday the grocer announced that Mr. Bolland had left it with immediate effect.

Morrison’s management is focusing on planning budget and strategy for the next year.
