Dubai: In line with its promise to reinvent the retail and catering experience for customers in the region, Ghassan Aboud Group’s retail arm – Grandiose Supermarkets – has appointed Franck Rouquet as its CEO.
Previously, Frank Rouquet worked with a leading French retailer –Auchan- in Europe. In addition, he served as Vice President of Carrefour Supermarkets in the GCC from 2009-2015 and established 50 supermarkets for the group.
“This is a great opportunity to be part of an ambitious brand’s journey from local to regional and eventually international expansion,” stated Franck. “The UAE is a matured market when it comes to retail. With rising customers’ awareness, they expect an international product spectrum that respects their preferences. Our offering will address this latent demand through an international partnership that could potentially revolutionise the prevailing consumption pattern here. We will have exciting developments in this regard shortly.”
