Dick Smith restructures in Australia/New Zealand

James Cunnold has replaced Felicity Heron as general manager of Dick Smith Electronics (DSE), as the company introduces a new structure aimed at closer alignment between its New Zealand and Australian businesses.

A DSE spokesperson says there will be “staff movements” as part of the restructure, but says there are “no redundancies happening”. She wouldn’t give details on which roles would be moved.

However, Reseller News understands the company’s New Zealand buying group may be disestablished, with sources saying this function will instead be carried out by the Australian business.

Cunnold has been promoted from his role as national merchandise manager, while Heron leaves the group to head a business review for Woolworths Group (DSE’s owner) across the Tasman, the DSE spokesperson says.

“There is an opportunity for the two DSE businesses to work more closely together, therefore essentially becoming one entity across the two countries,” the retailer says in an emailed statement.

“There will be staff movements as part of the new business strategy and as such, the business is working through placement within the new structure across Australia and New Zealand.”
