Spain’s 2nd biggest retail group and Europe’s no 1 department store with a turnover of €8.5b and 91 stores

“Transformation Programme for Europe’s No 1 Department Store”

El Corte Inglés is a retail icon in Spain but wants to improve efficiency and profitability.

Executive lead on an ambitious transformation programme to reduce stock cover by 10 weeks by improving financial planning and control. I provide industry best practice to inform the new operating model, which is being designed with the divisional leaders and a Steering Group and will be consistent across the divisions.

So far, the programme has defined a new trading calendar, trading metrics and management reports to provide visibility and control; defined new role profiles for Buying and Merchandising and RACI and introduced training on the new concepts to two divisions.

I support the El Corte Ingles project lead and direct the team activities for the Director of Merchandise with associates from First Friday to deliver the programme.
