Metcash Food CEO steps down after more than 30 years

Metcash has announced the resignation of Scott Marshall, CEO of the food pillar, after more than 30 years of service with the company.

Marshall stated he will pursue another career opportunity, following a long history with Metcash which saw him hold several senior management positions, including CEO of the food pillar for the past five years, and CEO of the liquor pillar.

Doug Jones, Group CEO, said Marshall will be leaving a valuable legacy that includes a strong management and a clear and winning strategy that has seen the food pillar deliver exceptional results and be well positioned for ongoing success.

“Scott, together with his strong management team, have been instrumental in positioning the Food pillar with an aligned and healthy retail network which, together with proven structures and systems, provides the right platform for continued success.

“The Board and I thank Scott for his significant contribution to Metcash and wish him all the best for the future.”

Marshall will continue with Metcash to assist with a smooth transition while an extensive search for a successor will be undertaken, that will include internal and external candidates, and is expected to be completed by end of June.
