The president and CEO of US retail giant Walmart is to speak at a special FGC event in Auckland on November 7.

Greg Foran is a Kiwi, and our most successful FMCG leader, and he will speak exclusively to FGC members ahead of the annual conference, which starts later in the day in Brisbane.

Mr Foran is responsible for the strategic direction and performance of 4600 stores and more than 1 million staff. Last year, Walmart US was serving more than 140 million customers a week and had revenues of $307 billion.

This event is designed for leaders to bring their teams and to inspire current and future Kiwi FMCG leaders.

The event will be at Villa Maria, South Auckland, at 12.30pm on November 7. FGC will be releasing registration details soon.
