Mark Powell, the former CEO of The Warehouse Group, has joined the 7-Eleven Board as a Non-Executive Director, effective 6 December.
Michael Smith, Chairman, 7-Eleven, said that Powell brings with him several decades of executive experience across the retail, wholesale, and logistics sectors.
“Mark’s appointment adds to the diversity of experience, knowledge and expertise of the 7-Eleven Board as the company pursues its growth and innovation strategy.
“There’s great alignment between Mark’s involvement in retail food, food service, convenience and consumer goods and 7-Eleven’s plans to continue to be at the forefront of convenience in Australia.
“Mark’s executive leadership experience has also resulted in him holding Board positions with JB Hi-Fi, Bapcor and the Kiwi Property Group,” said Smith.
Powell replaces Bob Baily who recently retired from the Board after almost 20 years as a Non-Executive Director.
