Former Nakumatt Marketing Officer joins Uchumi as the COO

Dixon Andrew, Nakumatt’s former Chief Marketing Officer, has joined Uchumi Supermarkets as the retailer’s new COO.

The move comes a month after Dixon left rival Nakumatt.

His appointment comes at a time when Kenya’s once biggest retailers are grappling with heavy debt and consistent losses.

Uchumi believes Dixon’s appointment will help turn the tide on its poor performance.
