Roger Laughlin - CEO at Makro Group
Roger was born in Caracas, Venezuela, and is graduated in Business Administration. He developed his career in commercial areas and had a major participation in starting up and developing a manufacturing facility in Venezuela for toys and games. In the process of finding novelties and products to manufacture and import, he has visited major trade fairs since 1974 and has acquired an in-depth knowledge of markets and industrial operations in China, Denmark (as exclusive distributors of LEGO in Venezuela since 1990), Italy (home products) and the US. He started his career in the SHV Group being involved with important suppliers of Makro Venezuela. Through this experience, Makro Venezuela and these companies conducted several operations of joint buying, and this was the main reason why he ended up managing MSA Joint Buying Operation at Makro from June 2005 to February 2006. In 2006 he was appointed CEO of Makro Argentina. Then in 2010 he was appointed CEO of Makro Brazil and in 2017 he was appointed CEO of Makro Group.
