Thriving well before Thrive Collective

George Gabriel

George is an incredibly driven strategic team player and problem solver who consistently achieves or overachieves his targets. If the opportunity presented itself, I would gladly work with him again in the future.

During his first 18 months at Monde Nissin Australia, George delivered double digit profitable growth through managing and growing five categories as a Coles National Account Manager. George showed a true commitment to adding value to the wider business, from acting as a mentor to a team member to becoming an integral part of the category team.

As a result, George was promoted to manage the Quorn business for Australia, where his focus was to work cross-functionally and manage MNA internal, Quorn UK and retailer teams to develop the long-term growth strategies for Australia. Once again, George achieved double digit profitable growth.

I wish George all the best for the future as I’m sure he’ll continue to consistently deliver in any business that’s lucky enough to have him.

Christian D’Andrea

Christian has consistently played an integral role in driving business optimisation initiatives over the past 3 years through his unique approach towards developing commercial solutions.

With an in-depth understanding of the retail landscape and categories, Christian has overcome a number of obstacles through his perseverance and delivered on a number of business initiatives across both major retailers to drive profitable growth for both the business, and the customer.

Given the complex nature of the retail industry, Christian has a measured and multifaceted approach to driving long term sustainable growth. Through leveraging relationships both internally and with the retailers, Christian has developed and executed strategies from conception to the shelf, which has delivered on strategic objectives for both Monde Nissin and the retailers.

During the time I had Christian in my team, I have encountered his adaptability, drive and industry knowledge to be the key to his success, and ultimately for any business he works across.
