His extensive knowledge, established track-record and valuable industry connections helps your brand achieve outstanding results. With a career that has taken him to 15 very diverse countries, in senior marketing and operational roles, George understands retail and what it takes to engage the consumer.

Experience matters and with a wealth of career highlights behind him – including multiple world first launches in FMCG products as well as his role in the biggest positive retail turnarounds in supermarket retail history – the Wesfarmers takeover in 2008 and transformation of Coles during the following 6 years, George understands what it takes to succeed.

His careful eye guides your product through the best possible avenues for retail success, with thorough analysis to help decrease unwanted costs, while still increasing quality and innovation.
