Pernod Ricard SA to centralise ops in Jozi
Beverage company Pernod Ricard South Africa will officially relocate its Cape Town offices to Woodmead, Johannesburg, by 31 December this year, in a move set to enhance cohesion, collaboration and efficiencies, according to the company.
All support roles to the sub-Saharan affiliates will be consolidated into Pernod Ricard SA, which will become the lead market focusing on critical areas: finance consolidation, tax, pan-regional marketing campaigns, route-to-market, talent management, digital, sales capabilities, strategy and planning.
“The unification in Johannesburg, which is viewed as the economic hub of SA and the gateway to the continent, will allow better connections with our sub-Saharan affiliates and drive a renewed cohesion for the business in our ambition to become the no. 1 in Africa. It will also reinforce our organisation in SA,” says Paul-Robert Bouhier, Pernod Ricard SA MD.
