Makro is on the hunt for a new operations director following the departure of Mark Lack.

Lack has taken on the role of business practitioner for operations at the wholesaler's German parent company Metro Cash & Carry's corporate house of training, where staff can develop new skills and qualifications.

He was operations director at Makro for two years, with overall responsibility for Makro's 33 UK depots, depot refurbishments and sales. Prior to Makro, he held a number of roles at Metro's operations in Bulgaria, France, Italy and Germany. He has also worked for Booker, Aldi and Majestic Wine.

Makro's UK managing director Hannes Floto would take over Lack's responsibilities until a replacement was found for the position, a Makro spokeswoman said.

"We would like to thank Lack for his valuable contribution and commitment and wish him all the best and every success for his new assignment," she added.
