Maxima International Sourcing Names New CEO

Lithuanian retailer Maxima Grupė has named Vilma Drulienė as the new chief executive officer of its procurement arm, Maxima International Sourcing.

She will also continue to serve as the chief commercial officer and a member of the board at Maxima LT, the retailer said.

Drulienė will replace Gintaras Jasinskas, whose future role in the organisation is yet to be announced.

CEO of Maxima Grupė, Jolanta Bivainytė, said, "Gintaras accomplished the goals set for him at a key establishment phase of Maxima International Sourcing. For this, we are grateful to him.

"As of now, [the] new company’s goals are being set. With Vilma’s arrival, we will take advantage of the synergy between the two purchasing teams of Maxima International Sourcing and Maxima LT,” she added.

An Experienced Professional

Drulienė is a skilled professional with more than 15 years of experience in the retail sector.

Since 2003, she's been part of the Maxima Grupė and has held leading positions in its commerce and purchasing divisions in the Lithuanian and Latvian markets.

Commenting on her new role, Drulienė, said, "The retail sector is extremely dynamic, demanding fast and non-standard solutions. By combining both teams’ experience, we can create a Maxima that will be the first choice for an ever-bigger circle of shoppers."

Maxima International Sourcing provides agency services to the group’s retail chains in the Baltic countries, Poland and Bulgaria, develops private-label brands, and engages in wholesale trade.
