Woolworths restructures management

Woolworths has appointed the current GM of operations for Dan Murphy’s Angus Armstrong as acting director for fuel and convenience, including the Woolworths Metro network, amid a management reshuffle at the supermarket giant.

Woolworths confirmed the personnel changes to C&I Week, stating Armstrong will hold the position in the interim until the role has been filled.

Armstrong takes over from Woolworths’ former head of petrol and convenience Michael James who has been appointed director of stores.

C&I Week understands there have been additional management changes within Woolworths’ Australian and New Zealand supermarket divisions and its locally-based store transformation team.

Woolworths supermarket director Dave Chambers is set to return to his previous role of head of supermarkets in New Zealand while Pat McEntee who is currently based in New Zealand will return to Australia to take up a senior management role.

It comes as the retailer announced earlier this week that it plans to exit its home improvement businesses Masters Home Improvement and Home Timber & Hardware, a joint venture with US-based Lowe’s, through a prospective sale or wind-up process.
