Pick n Pay has appointed new senior personnel and announced a number of changes to existing reporting structures within the company.

Gerhard Ackermann, previously the merchandising director at the Shoprite Group, and Gustave Moller, previously responsible for the creation and expansion of Shoprite’s U-Save format, are the newest additions to the Pick n Pay team.

Ackerman has joined with immediate effect and will be working towards a stronger price and promotional strategy for Pick n Pay, alongside CEO Richard Brasher and food merchandise director, Peter Arnold. With over 10 years of experience in the industry, Ackermann brings with him a sound knowledge of trading within this market.

Moller’s expertise lies in trading and emerging markets and he will join the planning department at the beginning of May. Working closely with Brasher and the retail and merchandising divisions, Moller’s focus will be on formatting development plans.

Current operations director, Neal Quirk will take on additional responsibilities for the group’s general merchandise and clothing departments. In addition to his existing responsibilities as a member of the group executive, Quirk has extensive experience in the operations side of the business and will work closely with Arnold.

In addition to his current role as general manager of Gauteng operations, Wim Theron will now take responsibility for all regions.
