Foodstuffs North Island leadership changes

Foodstuffs North Island (FSNI) has announced changes to its senior leadership structure, which will enable the co-operative to better serve the 1.3 million New Zealanders shopping in its New World, PAK’nSAVE, and Four Square stores across the North Island every week.

The announcement of a newly created GM Membership & Property role, which will combine the previous GM Retail and GM Property roles and teams into one and report directly to the CEO, is a strong signal around how important the need to meet customers’ needs are.

Lindsay Rowles, currently FSNI GM Property, will be taking on this new role from Monday 1 October.

“Lindsay is passionate about doing things smarter for our customers and business,” says FSNI CEO Chris Quin. “He has been with Foodies since 2016, and in that time has reset our property and network strategy to drive our next generation of retail.”

The company took the opportunity to review their leadership team structure after recent changes, including previous GM Retail Doug Cochrane leaving his role to begin the journey to store ownership within Foodstuffs.

“The new Membership & Property team will be responsible for partnering with our stores to support them in delivering the very best customer experiences,” says Quin.

“FSNI has been serving customers for nearly 100 years and we’re well on the way to setting ourselves up for the next 100. Changes like this will ensure that we are future-fit and ready to help New Zealanders get more out of life.”
