Woolworths announces new interim CFO, Zaid Manjra


Woolworths’ new interim CFO Zaid Manjra will be taking over from exiting group FD Reeza Isaacs.

Woolworths has announced the appointment of Zaid Manjra as its interim CFO. This comes after Reeza Isaacs, who has been the company’s group FD for the last decade, revealed his intentions to step down from the position to pursue new interests.

Zaid has been with Woolworth for 15 years, most recently serving as head of group planning and reporting. Before that, he was the finance manager for the company’s Retail Operations Group.

He has served under Reeza’s leadership for the last 10 years, and in 2016, when Reeza won the CFO of the Year Award, Zaid collected the award on his behalf.
