Morrisons’ former online operations director George Dymond, who unexpectedly left the Bradford-headquartered retailer last month, has resurfaced at Tesco.

Dymond joined from Australian supermarket chain Coles in the autumn amd was due to lead the day-to-day running of Morrisons’ online grocery service. However, within weeks there emerged a disagreement about the nature of his role.

He has now joined Tesco as operations development director, although both Tesco and Morrisons have refused to provide any further detail at this point.

Morrison recently blamed its lack of online offering for its disappointing Christmas performance, which saw sales drop 5.6% compared to the previous year.
