Vodafone UK appoints new head of direct sales

Vodafone has appointed the former CEO of Marks & Spencer Reliance India as its new head of direct sales.

Martin Jones joins on 30 July and replaces Mike Durbridge, who is moving to a new role within Vodafone Group that focuses on multi-channel distribution and retail operations. Jones will report to Srini Gopalan, consumer director at Vodafone UK.

Gopalan said: 'We look forward to welcoming Martin to Vodafone UK to continue the transformation of our retail experience to deliver the mobile internet into our customers’ hands.  Mike has built a formidable multi-channel business here and his new role offers a fantastic opportunity to apply that on a global scale.'

Jones began his retail career at Marks & Spencer as a management trainee. Vodafone said Jones 'held a variety of retail roles including sizeable divisional and regional positions' at the department store. He was CEO of the Reliance India business for the past two years.
