Tesco's IT director 44 year old Philip Clarke is paid £2.2m for his work at the supermarket. Clarke has been on the board of directors since 1998.

Clarke is responsible for Tesco international expansion, mainly in eastern Europe and south-east Asia, as well as its computer systems. The supermarket has more than 800 stores outwith the UK and is soon to open its first US store.

Clarke receives a basic salary of £628,000 with the rest coming from cash and share bonuses. This puts him in the middle ranks of Tesco directors and some way behind chief executive Terry Leahy who trousers just under £4m.
