Stephen Vowles has been named marketing director at Argos, with the retailer tasking him with leading its marketing and brand strategy.

Effective 30 September, he will report to managing director John Walden. His remit also includes managing the brand’s planning, communication, promotions, consumer insight and analytics, personalised marketing, own brand management and customer experience management across all touch points.

“Stephen is a great addition to a strong leadership team. He will play a pivotal role within the leadership team as the ‘voice of the customer’ within Argos, leading the drive to become a more consumer centric company and the repositioning of the brand and customer experience to be a universally appealing digital retail leader,” said Walden.

Vowles has joined Argos from Ladbrokes, where he served as customer experience director and chief marketer. At Ladbrokes his contribution provided a strong foundation for its recently announced partnership with Playtech.
