He began his career working for international marketing agencies in the UK and Singapore, before spending the last decade in the retail sector with Aldi and Boots, the company noted.

Commenting on his appointment, Zavalis said, "Asda is a much-loved brand which is part of the fabric of many communities right across the UK.

"It is a business with a rich history as a consumer champion and an exciting future, which I am delighted to be part of."
