Rob Scott will officially succeed Richard Goyder as CEO of Wesfarmers on 16 November. Scott is upbeat about the outlook for the Perth-based conglomerate’s retail operations during the upcoming Christmas shopping season, and he is confident that it will be the division’s best Christmas period on record. Scott has downplayed the impact that the entry of e-commerce giant Amazon will have on Wesfarmers’ retail businesses, noting that customers can already buy 130,000 products online.
