Metcash confirms appointment of Madeleine Fitzpatrick from McDonald’s

McDonaldsIGA-owned Metcash has confirmed the appointment of McDonald’s marketing director Madeleine Fitzpatrick.

Fitzpatrick, who was second in command at the fast food outlet, is expected to start at the company in around two weeks in the role of general manager of marketing.

The appointment comes after a four month search by Metcash following the departure of Michele Teague.

Fitzpatrick worked for seven years at Kellogg’s before joining McDonald’s in 2010. She is also on the board of the Australian Association of National Advertisers.

A McDonald’s spokesperson said: “Madeleine has been a tremendous contributor to our business and we wish her well as she continues her career.”

A recruitment process for a replacement is underway.
