    Judith McKenna has been named chief operating officer of Asda, Britain’s second-biggest supermarket group by market share, succeeding former Tesco executive Simon King, who left after only six months in the post.

    Ms McKenna is Asda’s finance director and seasoned supermarket watchers said her promotion, effective from September, indicated she was being lined up for a bigger role within Walmart, Asda’s parent company.
