Retailer Best Buy named Neville Roberts chief information officer of Best Buy International, the strategic business unit focused on the enterprise's growth outside of the United States.
Previously, Roberts spent more than 18 years at Accenture, most recently as a senior partner in their Global Retail Practice where he was responsible for clients such as Wal-Mart International (including ASDA), WHSmith, Argos, and Tesco.
Roberts will lead Best Buy's international information systems team to create "Best Buy-in-a-box," a suite of off-the-shelf IT packages and custom-built applications bound together by integration services, that can provide standardized systems and processes as Best Buy moves into new global markets. One of his primary initial focuses will be to create an ecommerce platform as part of the multi-channel strategy to support the company's international growth.
