Woolies reshuffles grocery management
Woolworths has appointed the current head of its liquor business, Brad Banducci, as the new MD of food and liquor, and David Chambers, who has been MD of Woolworths’ New Zealand Countdown chain for the last four years, as director of supermarkets.
“Our liquor business is the undisputed market leader and the best example of innovation in Australian retail and Brad Banducci and his team have furthered that success,” Woolworths CEO, Grant O’Brien, said.
Banducci will continue to have responsibility for Woolworths Liquor Group until a new appointment has been made and Martin Smith, GM of Dan Murphy’s, will act as director of the Woolworths Liquor Group.
“This change places our best talent to lead our biggest businesses. Together, Brad and Dave bring the right mix of experience and the ability to create a winning operating culture,” O’Brien said.
Steve Donohue has been appointed acting MD, Progressive Enterprises until a new appointment has been made.
