The article reports that Post Office has appointed the former chief information officer of Safeway Inc. as its first operations director. Ric Francis, who will be responsible for both IT and non-IT services such as customer support, will sit on the board and executive committee. During his time at Safeway the company was at the forefront of retail IT innovation, trialling technology such as radio frequency identification and electronic shelf-edge labelling. Francis left Safeway last March following its takeover by Morrisons. Prior to Safeway, Francis worked for Mars Confectionery. He later became IT director for Pepsi Cola International, based in New York.
