Countdown makes changes to Store Ops
Countdown has made some changes to its store operations.
Staff have been notified in a document headed People. ‘Lead and Develop our people’ and ‘We love our Customers’. It’s in the name of Brett Ashley, General Manager – Store Operations, and starts: “Over the past few weeks Store Operations have been working on an exciting new way of operation. Our new way of working refers to the way we will structure our above store leadership teams. As part of this new structure, I am pleased to announce the following Group Manager appointments:”
It then names Operations Managers for Zones 1, 2, 3 and 4. Zone 1 seems to cover Northland and the North Shore; Zone 2, South Auckland, Waikato, and Tauranga; Zone 3, central and lower North Island; Zone 4, the South Island.
Each zone has up to six groups with each having a manager, variously based in Whangarei, Auckland, Waikato, Tauranga, Wanganui, Wellington, Masterton, Napier, Nelson, Christchurch, and Dunedin. The roles were effective from 4 May.
