Australian Liquor Marketers (ALM) CEO Fergus Collins will move across to run Metcash's supermarkets business following a management restructure announced this week.

Scott Marshall, currently general manager of merchandise & marketing at ALM will become the division's new CEO.

The reshuffle occured as a result of the splitting up of Metcash Food & Grocery into two divisions, each led by a separate CEO.

Metcash group CEO Ian Morrice said the changes were necessary for the company to take a more focused approach to food and grocery. 

“As a result of the change, the position of chief operating officer, Food & Grocery, will be disestablished and Silvestro Morabito will leave the company effective 20 December 2013 to pursue other opportunities," Morrice said.

With Collins becoming CEO of supermarkets, a new CEO of the convenience channel will be appointed in the near future.
