Wayne Hodson is current managing director of Spar Sri Lanka. He has been with the Spar group for more than 20 years, in various operational positions. His presence in Poland is intended to drive business operationally and strategically and to implement Spar’s organisational culture. The company wants to make the most of the company’s potential after its investments (this includes the acquisition of the Piotr i Pawel network).
Hodson will supervise the team consisting of Tomasz Syller as CEO, Jakub Karbowiak as CFO and Tomasz Waligorski as CCO (as we have written about in more detail here).
Spar in Poland below expectations
Wayne Hodson comes to Spar during a difficult period of coping with the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. Spar recently announced that between October 1, 2019 and August 28, 2020, its results in Poland were below expectations.
Due to COVID-19, retail sales have not yet returned to the previously predicted levels. Moreover, the network has also been unable to complete the integration and restructuring process. Despite this, the management believes that Spar Polska will have a positive impact on the results of the entire group as early as 2021.
