In a statement, Carrefour said that Cheval will be primarily responsible for “bringing the transformation of the operational and commercial model of the hypermarket business, which is a major challenge for the success of the Carrefour’s Transformation Plan.”

Meanwhile, Enrique Garcia Lopez has been appointed as Executive Director for E-commerce and Digital Transformation.

“The work we have accomplished over the past year has allowed Carrefour to accelerate its development in e-commerce and to progress on the path of digitization and omnichannel retail,” Carrefour said in a statement.
