SPAR International Elects Dominic Hall As New President

SPAR International has elected Dominic Hall, the joint managing director of James Hall & Co. Ltd in the United Kingdom, as its new president.

Hall is an accomplished professional, having worked in the James Hall & Co. family business since 1999. He represents the fifth generation of the Hall family therein, SPAR noted.

He has served as a board member of SPAR UK Food Distributors Ltd since 2007, having taken up the role of chair of the National Guild of SPAR UK in 2011, and he became a member of the supervisory board of SPAR International in 2017.

‘Proud History Of Grocery Retailing’

Commenting on his election, Hall said, “SPAR is an internationally renowned organisation, and I am grateful to have the opportunity to work with the board and SPAR country organisations to collectively grow and develop the SPAR brand.

“SPAR has a proud history of grocery retailing, and, as we move forward, I am committed to building on this legacy and driving growth. Together, we will continue to meet the evolving needs of our shoppers and make a positive impact on local communities around the world. I take this opportunity to thank my fellow board members for their trust and this appointment.”


Recently, SPAR Group, South Africa’s second-biggest grocery group, announced that it had found a buyer for its loss-making Polish business and expects cost savings and IT system enhancements to improve profitability, going forward.

SPAR bought a controlling stake in Polish deli and supermarket chain Piotr i Paweł in 2019, and the business was put up for sale last September.
