Aldi buying director Malachy O'Connor is set to join Tesco, reporting to the retailer's commercial director in Ireland, John Paul O'Reilly, according to the Irish Independent.
O'Connor has a long history in grocery retail, having worked as a category trading manager at BWG Foods, fresh food buyer at Superquinn and a buyer at Dunnes Stores.
The appointment follows a management shakeup at Aldi, which saw the business effectively split in two last year, with Niall O'Connor appointed head of Aldi's Mitchelstown operation, and Donald Mackay become MD of Aldi Naas.
