Tom Harvey

  • General Manager - Commercial, SPINNEYS
  • Chief Executive Officer

Tom joined Spinneys 3 years ago from the UK where he had previously worked in the buying teams of Marks & Spencer and Sainsburys in a variety of roles focused on fresh meat and latterly dairy. After two years leading the protein team at Spinneys, Tom was appointed to the Executive Leadership Team to manage the whole ambient grocery, frozen and non-food commercial division. During this time he helped to steer Spinneys & Waitrose through the turbulence of panic buying and the impact on retail of COVID-19 and devised the Spinneys Local Business Incubator Programme, which will see the first of the finalists launch into stores at the end of October. At the end of September, Tom was appointed as General Manager – Commercial. He assumed responsibility for the fresh buying team as well and now leads the entire commercial and sourcing operation for both Spinneys and Waitrose across UAE and Oman. In the last year he has led Spinneys to sustained record market share by implementing new ranging strategies, differentiating the product offer and focusing on a collaborative approach to working with suppliers.
