Anko Global hires former Tesco executive to drive European expansion

Anko Global, which is taking Australian general merchandise brand Anko into international markets, has appointed former Tesco executive Rimal Patel as head of UK and Europe.

In his new position, he will be responsible for driving expansion in the region.  

Patel has worked for over 20 years in the UK retail sector in senior roles with Tesco, Joules, The Very Group and John Lewis Partnership.

Speaking of the appointment, Arjun Puri, chief executive of Anko Global, said: “The brand selling over 12,000 products is loved by customers of all ages in markets as diverse as Australia, New Zealand and India and we believe now is the time to bring the Anko magic to key European markets, including the UK.

“Rimal will be a strong addition to the Anko Global team – his broad retail experience will benefit the global development team, and his understanding of the UK market will be critical in developing the right growth strategy for Anko Global in UK and Europe.”
