About Thierry

Thierry co-leads our Consumer and Retail Practices in the UK, and he leads our work on Retail Strategy in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. His clients include grocers, specialty retailers, and consumer goods companies.

Thierry guides his retail clients through strategic planning, format reinvention, and post-merger management challenges. In recent work, he helped to plan and guide a transformation program for a European grocery retailer, which dramatically improved product availability and reduced costs in both hypermarkets and supermarkets. He helped manage the end-to-end integration of two supermarket chains in Eastern Europe, including taking immediate action to turn around the business and optimize of the new store portfolio. He also recently engaged with a global retailer to design and launch a next-generation store concept, including new approaches for assortment, pricing, communication, promotions, store layout, and space allocation.

In his research efforts, Thierry has focused on format renewal and reinvention, portfolio strategy and the convergence between retail and entertainment to create retail destinations.
