Polish retailer Eurocash is consolidating all technology businesses and its entire IT division under the leadership of Szymon Mitoraj, who joined the company in October of this year.
The new structure will help the company use data more efficiently, achieve greater synergies, minimise the effect of duplication of areas and ensure unification of the technological tools already in place in the group.
Mitoraj added, "In the digital area, we want to bet on the synergy of solutions and data, we want them to be consistent and for our company to base its business decisions on them to a greater extent than before.
"Managing IT, all digital areas and data from one place, according to the so-called 'single unit logic', will allow us to optimise processes across the entire structure. This is a very practical, although still rare, solution in organisations that will allow us to see results relatively quickly."
The new structure will see Pawel Szerling take up the management of Frisco, succeeding CEO Jacka Palca, who resigned from his position last month.
Most recently, Szerling was associated with the e-commerce company Shopee, and before that, he worked for over nine years at the consulting firm McKinsey.
Paweł Surówka, chair of the Eurocash group management board said, "I would like to thank Jacka Palca, who headed Frisco for many years, for his contribution to the development and expansion of this company.
"At the same time, I wish Paweł Szerling, Tomasz Kubiak and Grzegorz Bielecki the greatest success in implementing the company's ambitious growth plan, which they have set for themselves as its management board."
