- Leadership - Oct 16, 2017

Carrefour has appointed Fnac Darty's Matthieu Malige as its new Chief Financial Officer. 

Malige, who starts immediately, replaces Pierre Jean Sivignon, who asked to be relieved from the role after being faced with 'personal difficulties'.

The appointment marks Malige's return to the company after he left in 2011 to become CFO of Fnac and then Fnac Darty on confirmation of the two businesses' merger.

During his previous eight-year stint with Carrefour, he held roles that included being CFO of its France and Belgium operations, as well as Director of Strategy and Development.

Carrefour Chief Executive Officer Alexandre Bompard joined from Fnac Darty in July and will resume work with his former colleague at the helm of the French retailer.

Meanwhile, Carrefour has launched a new Merci Voisin service in its French stores that allows online customers to have their shopping delivered by other customers, an offering termed the 'Uber for groceries'. 

In exchange for their services, couriers will be awarded a small fee and will be rated on the efficiency of their work.
