Andy Bond - Biography

Andy Bond, was appointed President & CEO of ASDA in March 2005. He started his ASDA career as a Marketing Manager in 1994, but during his 13 years at the company he has held various positions, including: COO where he was responsible for Retail Operations and Logistics, Managing Director for George, taking over when George Davis left the company, and Marketing Director - a position he progressed to within three years of joining ASDA.

Since taking on the role as CEO, Andy has sharpened Asda's strategic and operational focus and re-invigorated the top team. He recently heralded the dawn of a new era of democratic consumerism, with the launch of a series of Asda initiatives that place customers at the heart of the business.

Andy was educated at Kings Grammar School Grantham, before studying Engineering at Salford University. He started his career as a graduate trainee at British Gas, before attending Cranfield School of Management where he studied for an MBA. He was awarded Cranfield's Top Student Award that year.

He is married with two young children.
