What Happened To Harvey Norman’s Paul English? The Nine Network Know
Paul English the former Executive General Manager of the Harvey Norman owned Domayne has just popped up on one of the most watched TV shows in Australia the Nine Network News.
Here he was last night being described as a person who “having lost his job due to the COVID -19 epidemic” had turned to volunteering for Food Bank.
The only problem is that English lost his job suddenly at Domayne back in early February long before Harvey Norman laid off any staff due to COVID-19.
His LinkedIn profile claims he is employed by Paul English Consulting a position he has held between Oct 2015 to present day a total of 4 years & 8 months.
Under this listing he claims to have worked as the Executive General Manager of Domayne between Feb 2017 – Feb 2020 a total of 3 years and 1 month before he suddenly departed the business much to the surprise of other Harvey Norman executives.
English who is a highly respected executive in the CE industry having worked for Harvey Norman in a senior role for more than 9 years across Domayne, Joyce Mayne, and Harvey Norman.
He claims that in the 3 he was at Domayne he returned the business to a growth position and increased profitability of the franchise network through an improved go to market strategy, reduced inventory holdings and franchisee engagement.
It was never ever revealed, that Domayne was struggling prior to English being bought back to turn the business around.
The admirable work that English is doing a Foodbank should hold him in good stead as several retail groups are going to need English’s skills coming out of the COVID-19 epidemic.
