For both retail brands.
JB Hi-Fi Group CEO, Richard Murray has confirmed that the support office teams of The Good Guys and JB Hi-Fi will be brought together at a new location in Southbank Melbourne in April 2019.
“This is a really exciting project for the Group to bring two of the best retail teams in Australia under one roof,” he said.
Murray has assured investors that the two businesses will continue to operate independently with the teams being separated across multiple levels of the support office.
“From my perspective, our agility is at the core of the brand and a commonality that both JB Hi-Fi and The Good Guys share. Bringing the support office teams together is about being able to share best practice, and not about consolidating roles,” he said.
“We understand the strength of The Good Guys brand and its vital mix of home appliances within the Group. We remain focused on not diluting this strength or knowledge.”
Murray also confirmed that there is a new executive team in place with a number of roles absorbed in new Group roles. “Having said that, with regard to the senior brand executive team, we have ensured we have maintained the right level of knowledge of The Good Guys business by promoting experienced internal team members to join the existing executive team.”
