Melbourne event: "Amazon is here – what’s next for Australian supplier?"

Melbourne event: "Amazon is here – what’s next for Australian supplier?"

Following a successful Sydney presentation on "Amazon is here – what’s next and what should Australian consumer goods companies do?", Yngve Andresen, from Bain & Co, will be the guest speaker at a Drinks Association Network Breakfast in Melbourne on May 29.

Amazon finally arrived in Australia at the end of 2017 – to a muted reception. Andresen notes that while the initial launch might have been rushed and under delivered on expectations, it is poised to present the biggest retail disruption in a generation during 2018 and beyond.

The presentation will explore the impact of Amazon on the Australian retail and consumer goods landscape long term and how Australian consumer good companies can adapt.

Andresen is a Partner in the Melbourne office of Bain & Company, where he is a member of Bain’s Australian Retail & Consumer Products leadership team, and the Asia-Pacific leadership team. He has more than 15 years consulting experience predominately in the retail and consumer goods sector working across a range of food, beverage and discretionary categories. 

Andresen has also worked extensively with major grocery, wholesale, apparel and department store retailers in Australia, Asia and Europe. He specialises in customer strategy, large-scale growth and cost transformation, and mergers and acquisitions.
