Nichols said, “We conducted a global search to find the right candidate for the Woolworths Liquor Group GBD role.  We needed someone who was passionate about driving innovation through customer led insights and had extensive experience working with competing brand portfolios. We found the perfect candidate in Ewelina and were lucky enough to entice her back from New York.”
