MONTREAL -- Canadian retailer Metro, Inc. has reshuffled the heads of its Quebec and Ontario divisions, effective Jan. 3, 2008:
Alain Brisebois, currently s.v.p., Ontario division, has been appointed s.v.p., Quebec division, where he has previously worked for many years, most recently as s.v.p., wholesale operations, and Robert Sawyer, currently s.v.p., Quebec division, has been named s.v.p., Ontario division. With what the company deemed “his considerable expertise in operations and merchandising,” Sawyer will continue the work undertaken by Brisebois since 2005.
“The last year was an important one for the company, making significant progress with the integration of A&P Canada acquired in 2005, while at the same time achieving growth for a 17th consecutive year,” Metro noted in a statement. “This reorganization will allow the company to better meet the challenges of the competitive food retailing industry.”
With over 65,000 employees, Metro, Inc. operates nearly 600 supermarkets in the Canadian provinces of Ontario and Quebec under the Metro, Metro Plus, Super C, A&P, Dominion, Loeb, and Food Basics banners, as well as over 250 pharmacies under the Brunet, Clini Plus, The Pharmacy, and Drug Basics banners.
