Majid Al-Futtaim (MFA), Carrefour’s parent company, has appointed Christophe Orcet as the new country manager in Kenya.
Orcet previously served as the head of operations and commercial for the MAF Carrefour in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
He takes over from Franck Moreau who silently left the retailer in October 2022.
“Mr Orcet assumed his new role on 1st March 2023 and will oversee operations of Carrefour in East Africa. Mr Moreau tendered his resignation in October 2022 and worked hand in hand over the past 5 months with the company and Christophe Orcet to ensure a smooth transition,” the firm told Business Daily.
Orcet will oversee Carrefour operations in Kenya and Uganda. The chain retailer currently has 19 branches in Kenya and seven branches in Uganda.
Carrefour opened its first store in Kenya in 2016 and is currently eying the online retail market.
