The supermarket chain Día Argentina reports today that it has started a replacement of all its top executives at the local level in Argentina.
Since last year, the French chain became controlled by Letterone, an investment fund based in Luxembourg that was already a shareholder and is in the hands of the Russian millionaire Mikhail Fridman, also an initial investor in Uber, among so many other businesses. Similar changes also occurred in Spain and Portugal, for example.
“There have been a series of changes in the leadership dome that has a presence in the country, in order to give continuity and momentum to the plans in the region. Likewise, DIA at Group level is laying the foundations for future growth and that growth must have a solid foundation. For that reason, the company needs teams that are fully committed and aligned with their entire culture, through renewed leadership, ”said a statement.
Among the executives who leave today is CEO, Damián Dircie, in office since the beginning of this year, and executives in charge of finance and commercial strategy.
“During this new phase, DIA will continue to dedicate its resources and talent towards Argentina, reinforcing its confidence in the potential of the business in the country. In this way, Alejandro Grande, current Director of Human Resources of the Group (CHRO), will temporarily expand his responsibilities to assume the leadership of DIA Argentina as Interim General Director in this transition period. Grande was previously in charge of that position for 6 years (2013/2018), ”they detailed.
The brand has 950 stores throughout the country.
