Clem Constantine, property director at Marks & Spencer, has been given additional responsibility for the retailer’s international division.

An internal announcement about the change was made yesterday and Constantine has assumed his new role with immediate effect.

Constantine has proved successful in expanding Marks & Spencer in the UK since he joined in February 2008. The addition of the international division is an indication of the retailer’s current focus on expansion overseas.

Prior to joining M&S, Constantine was group property and retail planning director at Arcadia.
