Guillaume Chêne

Managing Director, METRO Cash & Carry CZ & SK

I started my career in venture capital, and pivoted toward the distribution sector in 1996.


Within my 20 years of distribution I have gained experience in different managerial positions in wholesale and retail, e. g. head of controlling, regional management, operations, non-food buying and logistics.


Before climbing the hierarchical steps, I started as a trainee department manager at Auchan “Le Mans” in 1997.


Since April 2014, I have been appointed CEO of Makro Czech Republic and METRO Slovakia responsible for 4 400 employees and an annual revenue of € 1,4 billion.


I am a graduate of ESSEC in Paris, Master of Econometrics and a former officer in the French Navy.
