John Moriarty will lead this team as its new CEO. John joins the company from Beyond, a travel and hospitality tech development and advisory service, where he is the founder and CEO. He previously served as Chief Retail Officer of Gategroup, being responsible for the global retail division, and held various leadership positions with Runway Duty Free and Aer Rianta.

Later in the year, Moriarty will be joined by a CTO and a COO.

Incumbents Elizabeth Repolho da Silva (CFO), Laura Roesges (CCO), Marius Banholzer (CRO) and Trish Costelloe (CCSO) will remain part of RiM’s top management team to refocus the organisation on developing a customer-centric culture that allows it to better deliver on its winning strategy.

Along with all teams around the world, the team at RiM in Dublin will continue to be supported by the GCRI1 Board of Directors and AURELIUS Portfolio Advisory Managing Directors, René Herzog and Janno Gröne, ensuring success in the next stage of their growth trajectory.

“We want to give Retail inMotion the power to control its own destiny,” said Erdmann Rauer, LSG Group CEO. “The management team, led by John Moriarty, will enable the business to take decisions faster and operate more efficiently, reinvigorating its sense of purpose and allowing it to unlock new value-creation opportunities. By ensuring that Retail inMotion better serves the needs of its customers, suppliers and partners, I am confident that today marks the start of a bright future for the business.”
