Everli, Europe’s leading online grocery marketplace, announces today that it has hired Petr Novak in the position of Country Manager Czech Republic.
Joining from Sodexo, Petr developed a strong experience in the B2B and B2C services industry as Commercial Director. During his professional career, he has been responsible for new business development, building new sales channels, reorganisations with special focus on effectiveness and customer experience.
Anna Podkowinska-Tretyn, Chief International Business Officer commented “Our business model helps retailers to offer online sales without any fixed costs, very quickly and across the country (not only in big cities). We bring an additional channel through which retailers can reach new customers. This strategy has already proven successful in other markets in which we operate. Retailers see the multi-channel strategy as an opportunity to be more competitive. It is not a choice between investing in their own e-shop or in Everli. On the contrary, these two channels can complement each other perfectly. That’s why Petr’s mission will be to let retailers know that we are not competing with them, but working with them.”
It’s been more than a year since Italian grocery marketplace Everli entered the Czech market. Its main goal is to help food retailers move their products online and simplify the shopping experience for customers. Since then, Everli has established its place among other online food retailers on the Czech market. It currently serves 16 Czech cities, namely Prague, Brno, Ostrava, Pilsen, Olomouc, Havířov, Liberec, České Budějovice, Hradec Králové, Ústí nad Labem, Pardubice and Kladno. The latest additions to the cities served are Most, Opava, Frýdek-Místek and Zlín.
Petr commented “Everli is a young and dynamic company that operates in a very competitive market. I see a great opportunity for us to quickly become the preferred grocery delivery option in Czech Republic because of our unique business model and international experience from other markets. Everli offers retailers a great opportunity to get their products online, closer to the customer with no fixed cost simply with joining the marketplace. I appreciate that Everli still works in some ways like a startup, I‘m looking forward to the challenge after years spent in corporations.”
