Metcash has appointed Grant Ramage as its new food pillar CEO. He will commence the role on May 1.
The appointment follows the completion of a global search after the resignation of Scott Marshall early this year.
Before joining Metcash, Ramage was with Coles Liquor, where he held several roles across marketing, merchandise, operations and business development. His earlier endeavours included 10 years with UK wine retailer Oddbins, working in retail stores and buying.
After joining Metcash in 2015, he was state GM for supermarkets in WA, where he led the development of logistics operations in the state, building resilience to protect against increased competition, and the deregulation of trading hours.
Ramage is currently the executive GM for merchandise in Metcash’s food pillar, a position he has held for the past four years, in which he was a key contributor to the strong performance of the food pillar and the IGA retail store network.
“I am delighted to announce the appointment of Grant. He is uniquely positioned to take the CEO food role into its next era,” said Doug Jones, CEO at Metcash Group.
