Aldi appoints new managing director for Ireland

Aldi has announced that it has appointed Niall O’Connor to the position of group managing director for Aldi Ireland.

The retailer said O’Connor actually took up his role in late 2019, but has spent the last few months liaising with colleagues across Aldi’s global operations in preparation for his new position.

Having worked as a senior executive with Aldi in Ireland for almost 20 years, he was appointed as group buying director in 2010. Most recently, he worked as managing director of Aldi’s Mitchelstown region where he was responsible for the retailer’s business across Munster and Connacht.

Giles Hurley, chief executive of Aldi UK & Ireland, said: “Niall has made a huge contribution during his tenure at Aldi, developing our Irish buying team and leading our Mitchelstown Region store teams through dynamic growth. His appointment as group managing director Ireland is a major step forward in positioning Aldi Ireland for further success in the years ahead.”

O’Connor will be responsible for all of Aldi’s activities in Ireland including its multi-million-euro store-opening programme and Irish buying office.  One of his first tasks will be to lead Aldi’s 4,000 strong staff team through the covid-19 pandemic.

Aldi has  142 stores in Ireland and is planning to open a further seven this year. It is also investing €60 million in improving store layouts and the design of shops.
