Woolworths MD of B2B & Everyday Needs Claire Peters resigns
Claire Peters, Woolworths’ MD of B2B & Everyday Needs, has resigned to take up a new role with Amazon in the US.
Peters joined Woolworths as MD of supermarkets in 2017, before taking on her current role in 2020.
She will leave the company at the end of this year to relocate to Seattle, Washington, to take up the role of VP worldwide at Amazon Fresh.
“In her five years with Woolworths Group, Claire has played a key role in transforming Woolworths Supermarkets and building the foundations of B2B and Everyday Needs,” said Woolworths Group CEO Brad Banducci.
“As the MD of Woolworths Supermarkets, Claire elevated the focus on our customers while also materially improving our retail operations. Since September 2020 Claire has helped to guide the transformation of Big W, establish our end-to-end meat business Greenstock, and progress our partnerships including Endeavour Group, PFD and Ampol,” he said.
Banducci paid tribute to “the biggest imprint” Peters will leave on the business – “her care for team and communities, on show in the leadership role she played during the repeated waves of Covid, and her purposeful work on reconciliation with the support of the First Nations Advisory Board”.
