Reliance Retail hiring professionals from Thailand

Reliance Retail is slowly filling its top slots with professionals from Thailand, a country whose retail market once used to resemble India’s with its freshly minted organised players hemmed in by a well-entrenched network of neighbourhood stores.

The firm has already hired at least 10 people in key roles – all of them from Thailand’s Tesco Lotus. Around 20-25 more are expected to join in the coming months to run its value formats, confirmed two persons on condition of anonymity since they are not authorised to speak to the media.
