Aldi Australia doubles up on its management structure

 In Aldi, Australia, NewZealand
Aldi has appointed one of its longest-serving executives as joint group managing director, moving to the dual-management model in place at Aldi operations around the world.
German-born Stefan Kopp, who was part of the team that arrived in Australia in 2000 to launch the discount retailer, will run Aldi alongside Tom Daunt, who has been group managing director for three years.
Mr Kopp, who started his new role last week, joined the company 23 years ago and has been head of buying for the past three years.
