Mick McMahon, currently chief operating officer of Coles, will take up an old/new senior position after Ian McLeod starts later this month as managing director of the Coles division of Wesfarmers.
As director – Liquor, Express and Supply Chain, Mr McMahon will be responsible to Ian McLeod for the division’s liquor, fuel and convenience store businesses (Coles Express) and the supply chain function across supermarkets, liquor and Express.
Wesfarmers managing director Richard Goyder said Mick McMahon had made a great contribution in the five months since Coles was acquired.
“I am very pleased Mick will continue to play a central role in the Coles operations,” he said. “With Terry Bowen as finance director and John Durkan as merchandise director, plus others yet to be appointed, Ian McLeod will have the high quality team he needs to lead and transform the Coles business.”
