Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc. has named Filipe Da Silva executive vice president and chief financial officer as Claude Tessier announces his retirement.
Tessier officially steps down on July 1, but will stay on with Couche-Tard to assist Da Silva as he transitions into his new role.
Da Silva is currently SVP of finance at Couche-Tard.
The executive started his career with French energy conglomerate TotalEnergies in Argentina, before joining Carrefour, where he worked in Buenos Aires, Colombia, India and Indonesia.
He later joined Groupe Exito, one of South America's largest big box retailers.
Da Silva then moved to Walmart's Central America subsidiary as CFO and later became Walmart Canada's CFO.
"Filipe has already proved himself as a trusted leader in the organization since joining in March 2023 and has spent much time learning the business from Claude. We have full confidence in Filipe, along with our experienced and highly capable finance team, and we expect the seamless transition between the two roles to be transparent for financial markets. I want to thank him for taking on this mandate, and I look forward to working with Filipe in his new capacity," said Brian Hannasch, president and CEO of Couche-Tard, in a statement.
