Retail Excellence has recently announced the promotion of Lorraine Higgins to CEO.
She will succeed the body which represents and advocates for Ireland’s retail industry's founder David Fitzsimons, who led the organization for 22 years.
“Having founded Retail Excellence more than twenty years ago, I believe the time is right for a new CEO to take up the helm,” Fitzsimons said.
"Therefore it is with great pleasure that I can confirm that my colleague Lorraine Higgins will be promoted to that position commencing 1 July 2018."
Higgins joined Retail Excellence in January 2017 as the organisation’s head of public affairs, and was named deputy CEO in July last year."
“Lorraine is a very competent person,” he said, “and coming from retailing stock she is fundamentally aware of the issues facing members."
Higgins added: “I look forward to building on David’s extraordinary success over the past 22 years. I intend to work hard to further drive the strategic development of the organization on every level, with the support of our Board, internal committees and members.
