About Andre Reich

Andre Reich
Andre Reich — CEO

Andre is recognised across the market as a high performing retail executive with extensive experience in low price general merchandise and apparel retail formats.
Andre’s retail experience commenced at Myer in the mid-1990s with time in a number of roles spanning business growth roles, concessions and buying. In 2007, Andre became the CEO of Review (an Australian womenswear retail brand) and he successfully transitioned that business to new ownership.

In 2009, Andre joined Wesfarmers and played a key role in Kmart Australia’s successful turnaround through his leadership of the merchandise and marketing functions. Andre was transferred to Target Australia as Chief Operating Officer in 2016 with responsibility for merchandise, sourcing, quality and marketing. Andre spent three years resetting the Target Australia business.

Andre joined The Reject Shop in January 2020 to implement his three-phase ‘fix, reset and grow’ turnaround strategy. The Reject Shop has been delivering value to shoppers for almost 40 years by helping all Australians save money on everyday items across 350 store locations nationwide. The Company has made good progress over the past 12 months, including while navigating through COVID-19, but there is plenty more work to do to fix and grow The Reject Shop and to help its customers save every day!
