Oliver’s appoints new Chief Executive Officer

Tammie Phillips has announced that she will step down as CEO of Oliver’s on 21 December to pursue new opportunities within the health food consumer brand sector.

Phillips joined Oliver’s as CEO in June 2020 and has been instrumental in guiding the business through a period of significant transformation and strategic repositioning. She has overseen a complete restructuring of the business, its operations, culture, menu, and management, with demonstrable success.

Phillips will be succeeded by Natalie Sharpe, Oliver’s current Head of Supply Chain and Product. Sharpe has been the primary driving force in the Oliver’s menu development, bringing strong and experienced nutritional expertise to the company, which will underpin the forward momentum of Oliver’s.

Martin Green, Oliver’s Chairman, said the Board’s priorities in selecting a new CEO were identifying someone who truly understands the operations of Oliver’s and who will maintain the momentum in the business.

“Natalie has the ideal capabilities and attributes to lead Oliver’s through its next phase of growth and we are delighted that our new CEO comes from within the organisation,” he said.

Sharpe, who will transition into the CEO role on 21 December, said that Oliver’s has an exciting future and that she is passionate about the opportunities that exist for the company.

“I am honoured to have the opportunity to lead Oliver’s and I look forward to working with the Board and leadership team to deliver the next phase of growth.”

Phillips will continue to advise Oliver’s on key strategic projects in a consulting capacity until 31 March 2023.

Speaking about her tenure as CEO, Green thanked Phillips for her stewardship during a period of major change for Oliver’s.

“Tammie’s exceptional leadership and dedication allowed Oliver’s to trade through the pandemic.

“With the transformation complete, as reflected in the delivery of our most recent quarterly results and one of our best performing quarters since the onset of the pandemic, Tammie leaves Oliver’s well placed for the opportunities ahead. We wish her all the best in her future endeavours,” he said.
