Dominic Quin joins the Foodstuffs team
Dominic (Dom) Quin is joining the Foodstuffs New Zealand team as Group General Manager – Marketing and Customer Experience, filling a role left in legendary shape by Steve Bayliss, who leaves after seven award-winning years.
Steve Anderson, Managing Director Foodstuffs NZ says, “We had a lot of interest in the role from exceptionally talented people here in New Zealand and around the world, which reminded us of how highly both our co-operatives are regarded in the industry and how strong our brands are.
“Dom is familiar with the co-operative model, having worked in owner-operator businesses in the UK, Australia and New Zealand. Leveraging the knowledge and know-how of the owner-operators while delivering world class marketing is an unbeatable formula for building irresistible brands and compelling experiences. It’s this that will keep our customers coming back for more. We are excited to have him pick up the reins from Steve Bayliss, who after seven years at the helm leaves New World, PAK’nSAVE and Four Square in fantastic shape.”
Quin has more than 25 years’ international business experience, and has held a number of senior leadership roles at Fonterra, including Head of Digital Transformation, Director Global Marketing Services, Director of Marketing and Innovation at Fonterra Brands, and GM Marketing and Innovation (Tip Top). Before Fonterra he held a number of senior marketing roles in Australia, including the head of Marketing for Yum! Brands, the master KFC franchisor.
Quin says, “I’m very excited to work for a 100% New Zealand owned and operated business which touches the lives of all New Zealanders in every community. I am looking forward to working closely with owner-operators, employees and the broader Foodstuffs team to bring superior customer experiences to life that will continue to make our stores and our brands the most desired in the country. What we do supports communities, and secures employment for the next generation. It’s a great business model to be part of.”
Steve Bayliss will finish in late June 2018 after a handover and an outstanding seven years with the two Co-ops.
Anderson says, “Steve’s passion for our customers has led us to extraordinary growth in revenue and market share, and he leaves big shoes to fill. We’re sure Dom is the right person to pick up where Steve has left off and look forward to seeing him in action.”
