Egg loses retail marketer as jobs suffer shake-up

Egg's retail marketing director Tony Anderson has quit the company less than a year after joining from EasyGroup, and will not be replaced.

Egg's retail marketing director Tony Anderson has quit the company less than a year after joining from EasyGroup, and will not be replaced.

Anderson left Egg, the Prudential's direct banking operation, two weeks ago and is not thought to have a job to go to. He declined to comment on his departure.

Anderson was hired to develop egg's e-tail shopping market and establish the brand as a one-stop online shop for both financial and non-financial goods. A spokeswoman for Egg said the company has undergone restructuring and there has been a shift in focus in some roles. Steve Gazzard, sales and development director will take over Anderson's responsibility for the Egg shop and its relationship with retailers. Tony Williams, brand and communications director, will continue to look after the group's marketing and advertising.

Anderson joined Egg in January from EasyGroup, where he was marketing director. He helped diversify EasyGroup's range of brands including new web venture EasyEverything. His departure comes as Egg is under pressure to subsidise its loss-making banking operation.
