From 1 September, Joëlle Bejjani, the current sales development director in France, will assume the position of commercial and supply chain director of Carrefour Polska and a member of its management board.
In 2014, she moved to China, where she was appointed national merchandise project director and sales development and pricing director.
After returning to France in 2018, she was pricing and merchandise transformation director, and then e-commerce sales development and pricing director in May 2019. Since December 2020, she has been the sales development director in France.
Bejjani succeeds Marek Lipka, who is set to join Eurocash Franczyza as its general director.
Carrefour Polska also announced that Agata Kopytyńska, real estate and expansion director at Carrefour Polska, has been promoted to the position of a member of its management group and the director of real estate, expansion and assets of Carrefour Polska.
Kopytyńska brings over 20 years of experience in the retail industry in the field of real estate and finance and has been associated with Carrefour since 2006.
Until 2012, she held managerial positions in the controlling department, and then led the real estate and expansion unit.
Elsewhere, Nicolas Legendre will assume the position of financial director of the retailer's Polish unit and member of its management group, effective 1 August.
In August 2011, Legendre joined Carrefour as internal auditor for Europe and South America. From July 2022, he served as the financial director at Eureca within the Carrefour Group. Before assuming this role, Nicolas was the controlling director at Carrefour Polska.
He will replace Jean-Francois Dohogne, who has been appointed CFO and member of the management group of Carrefour Italia.
"It is with great joy that I would like to emphasise the fact that two more women will join the top managerial positions of Carrefour Polska," said Tareck Ouaibi, president of the management board of Carrefour Polska.
"One of the pillars of our strategy is diversity. We implement it by implementing e.g. policy of equal opportunities on the labour market, including the pursuit of parity in our business environment. I believe that the example always comes from above and with the changes I announce today, I am glad that at the management level we will work in full parity - in the composition of three women and three men," Ouaibi added.
