New GM for Dick Smith Electronics

Retailer Dick Smith Electronics has found a new general manager internally after the resignation of Jeff Grover, who retired at the end of 2001.

New GM Greg Foran has spent the last 12 months as general manager for merchandise logistics at Dick Smith's parent company, Woolworths Supermarkets. Prior to that, he was CEO of the Australian office of The Warehouse Group of New Zealand.

Before that, he held a number of similar positions at Franklins Australia and Woolworths New Zealand.

As general manager, Foran will oversee Dick Smith Electronics, Dick Smith Electronics Powerhouse and Tandy. He will take up the role next month and will report to Dick McMorron, general manager of general merchandise for Woolworths, who has spent the last few months as acting general manager for Dick Smith while the search for Grover's replacement was conducted.
