Within the framework of the Auchan 2022 project, digital remains a priority of the transformation strategy. This digitisation will affect all of the Company’s business lines, in order to encourage and improve interaction between customers, suppliers, partners and also between employees.
Auchan Retail is creating a Digital Department to enable each player within the Company to use Auchan’s contact opportunities, tools and data on a daily basis to maximise the value creation of their business or activity.
Edgard Bonte, President of Auchan Retail, has decided to appoint Olivier Malvezin as Chief Digital Officer of Auchan Retail. Olivier will therefore become a member of Auchan Retail’s Executive Committee.
Olivier’s main responsibilities will be to develop new digital experiences, consumer experiences and the underlying business processes, to develop the Company’s data assets by ensuring data governance and quality, to ensure the development of IT solutions based on shared technological choices within the Company, and to develop technological innovations in line with Auchan’s transformation challenges.
On the occasion of this appointment, Edgard Bonte said: “Thanks to his international career, customer focus and ability to carry out complex transformation projects, I am convinced that Olivier will rise to the challenge of the digitisation of Auchan Retail and create the best technological conditions to support the success of our project.”
