17 Janvier, 2020, 11:44 | Auteur: Auguste Feret

Moir has been rather unpopular with shareholders who have placed much of the blame for the disastrous acquisition of David Jones on him.Bagattini does seem to have a good pedigree and can perhaps bring in some much-needed strategic and operational changes.His global experience may be what is needed to assist Woolworths with its global operations, additionally his experience in apparel may also lift the performance of the South African clothing division.

Moir announced previous year that he would be heading to Australia to oversee the turnaround plan of David Jones, the disastrous investment which saw Woolworths losing just under R12 billion of the initial R21.4 billion that it invested in the Australian brand.

Bagattini headed Levi Strauss in the USA for three years, and has also worked for Carlsberg beer and South African-founded brewer SABMiller.

Roy Bagattini has been appointed as the new Woolworths group CEO and an executive director, effective 17 February 2020. After serving the company for almost a decade, Moir will depart in February.

Moir will work closely with Bagattini to facilitate a transition and will continue in his role as acting CEO of David Jones, the company said.
