Following the changes associated with the acquisition of Tesco shops, the chain decided to implement changes in the management team as well. Janusz Stroka, who had been CEO since 2018, has now been replaced by Executive Vice President Mark Nielsen, who is a member of the Sailing Group Executive Committee.
Mark Nielsen has taken up the role on an interim basis. He is a member of the Salling Group Executive Committee and has been responsible for the hypermarket chain Bilka in Denmark for the past eight years. Netto plans to appoint a new director already this year. The new CEO will be responsible for further expansion on the Polish market. Among other things, his task will be to complete the rebranding of the Tesco chain, which was acquired by Netto in March this year.
– Janusz has done an excellent job for Netto Polska over the last three and a half years. He has strengthened the organisational structure of the chain, significantly raised its image and implemented our new shop concept Netto 3.0. He deserves great recognition and praise for his achievements. – says Michael Løve.
Dynamic development of the chain
After approval by the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection, Netto acquired the British chain Tesco. The transaction involved 301 shops and two distribution centres. Currently the transformation process is in progress and the plan for the next year and a half is to double the number of outlets.
Polish market turned out to be favourable for Netto, both due to the recorded growth and the investments made and those planned. The chain in the nearest future intends to invest PLN 900 million in transforming its outlets in accordance with the Netto 3.0 concept.
