ZAANDAM, Netherlands -- Ahold yesterday said it has appointed Dave McNally as c.i.o., effective this month, to guide the company through the next stage of its information management strategy.
McNally, who previously served as c.i.o. for Ahold's U.S. Foodservice subsidiary, will advise the Ahold corporate executive board and senior business executives on the strategic role and adoption of information technology throughout the company. He replaces Alex Gibbons, who has chosen to leave the company for personal reasons, according to Ahold.
"Since joining U.S. Foodservice, Dave has proven his ability to partner with the business and to develop practical solutions which address both short-term issues and long-term needs," said chief business support officer Arthur Brouwer in a statement. "I'm confident he will apply this expertise to help us move towards one Ahold IT strategy and portfolio of applications."
