Woolworths Group has named Annette Karantoni as chief supply chain officer and MD of its supply-chain arm Primary Connect.
Karantoni will remain in her role as Woolworths’ director of B2C e-commerce before starting her new role and joining the group’s executive committee next February.
“Karantoni has done an outstanding job rapidly expanding our e-commerce business to meet the surge in demand we’ve seen for online shopping over the past 18 months,” Brad Banducci, CEO of Woolworths.
“Annette joins a very strong team at Primary Connect, who have demonstrated safety and service leadership throughout the pandemic. I look forward to seeing them build our next generation supply chain in the years ahead.”
Karantoni has been working for Woolworths Group for 20 years under different roles. Prior to her role as director of B2C e-commerce, Karantoni led the development and investment roadmap for the Woolworths supply chain network. She has also held senior roles in supermarkets buying, marketing and replenishment.
Meanwhile, Chris Brooks, Woolworths Group’s current acting chief supply chain officer, will remain in the role until February.
