Spar Netherlands Announces New Organisational Structure

Spar Netherlands has announced that it will implement a CEO management model in its organisational structure, effective 1 October.

As part of the new structure, general manager John van der Ent will take over as the chairman of the management team.

Human resources manager, Marie-José Rutten, has been named the retailer's HR and organisation development director.

Other Changes

Edith Appels, the current finance and operations director, has stepped down from the role and is set to leave the company soon, Spar Netherlands said.

Under the new structure, the portfolio has been split into two roles – finance and IT director, and operations director.

Pim Dirckx, the manager of Spar operations in southern Netherlands, has been appointed the operations director, while the role of finance and IT director is yet to be filled.

'Logical Next Step'

Van der Ent commented, "With the appointment of Pim Dirckx as operations director, Spar is taking the logical next step in its rapid expansion of stores in the Netherlands."

Since 2009, Spar Netherlands has focused on modernising its stores in the country to offer consumers 'everyday convenience'.

According to Van der Ent, the retailer needs to emphasise on further professionalisation of business guidance and implement tools and systems that facilitate operational processes in the stores.
