El Corte Inglés replaces online director and continues store closures
What: Enrique García López is set to replace Ricardo Goizueta as the new online director while the group advances its portfolio reorganization through store closures.
Why it is important: García López will oversee the customer and online business areas and will report directly to José María Folache following the retirement of Ricardo Goizueta.
