Metcash has announced that Scott Marshall, CEO of the Food Pillar, has tendered his resignation to pursue another career opportunity.
Metcash Food CEO Scott Marshall.
Mr Marshall has been with Metcash for more than 30 years and has held several senior management positions, including CEO of the Food pillar for the past five years, and CEO of the Liquor pillar.
Having supported the appointment and successful transition of the Company’s new Group CEO last year, and with the business well positioned for the future, Mr Marshall advised that it is the right time for him to pursue career and personal growth opportunities beyond Metcash.
Group CEO Doug Jones says: “Scott will be leaving a valuable legacy that includes a very strong management team and a clear and winning strategy that has seen the Food pillar deliver exceptional results and be well positioned for ongoing success.
“Scott, together with his strong management team, have been instrumental in positioning the Food pillar with an aligned and healthy retail network which, together with proven structures and systems, provides the right platform for continued success,” Mr Jones said.
“The Board and I thank Scott for his significant contribution to Metcash and wish him all the best for the future.”
An extensive search will be undertaken for a successor that will include internal and external candidates. Mr Marshall will continue with Metcash to assist with a smooth transition of his successor, which is expected to be completed by end of June.
