After nearly four years with the Australian e-commerce business, Nati Harpaz is leaving his role as Managing Director of Catch.
“It is a happy & sad day that I am now leaving Catch after almost 4 years of fun, excitement, challenges and lots of growth,” Harpaz said in a post on LinkedIn. “Catch has become a family and each one of my team members is close to my heart.”
Harpaz entered the role in 2016, where the e-commerce company developed ‘a world-class IT platform’ and became one of the leading online retailers in Australia.
In June 2019, Wesfarmers acquired Catch fro $230 million. This acquisition has bolstered the digital growth of Kmart and Target, and now operates under the joint partnership of Kmart Group managing director Ian Bailey.
In March, Catch’s grocery traffic was up 467 percent due YoY to COVID-19 and self-isolation. “Our number one priority during these uncertain times is our customers and making sure they have access to the products they need, when they need it,” said Harpaz. “We will continue to bring our customers a convenient shopping experience from the comfort of their home across a huge range of products.”
“By working with our partners to source extra stock and by imposing a limit on certain items, we aim to help those in need of products such as kitchen and pantry essentials.”
