Cheval, currently the Executive Director for E-Commerce, Services and Digital Transformation, will replace Alain Rabec as Executive Director for Hypermarkets France.
The French retailer is currently undertaking a five-year plan to cut costs, boost e-commerce investment and expand into convenience stores.
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.
“This dynamic of transformation and growth, to which the group is committed, is more than ever essential for the future of Carrefour."
