New Makro MD

Makro UK’s managing director Philipp Dautzenberg left at the end of December to become managing director of Makro Portugal.
Makro’s parent company Metro Cash Carry has appointed Hannes Floto as his successor. Floto was previously food buying director of Makro Greece, following experience in Europe and the US, and took over the role at the beginning of January.
Floto said: “In 2005 Makro started an ambitious programme of modernising the store network, recently re-launching the company’s Rayleigh store, developing its business with catering customers and implementing a best in class fresh food offer. I am looking forward to joining the UK team and driving the company’s strategic positioning forward.”
Dautzenberg had been in charge at Makro UK for three years and was previously managing director of Schaper Cash Carry, which is also part of the Metro Group.
