He will head the subsidiary Maxima International Sourcing, which provides agency services to the group’s retail chains in the Baltic countries, Poland and Bulgaria, develops private label brands, and engages in wholesale trade. G. Jasinskas will also continue working as CEO of Maxima International Sourcing’s Polish unit.
“Commerce is a cornerstone of our business in Maxima Grupė’s current phase of growth. Gintaras Jasinskas is a real professional in this area.

As CEO of Maxima International Sourcing he is replacing Tomas Palevičius, who will continue his career outside the organization.
Maxima Grupė announced its decision to establish Maxima International Sourcing last fall. The company was created by separating off activities of Franmax, which has provided franchise and agency services for the group’s companies, aiming to refine and strengthen international purchasing competencies. After the reorganization, two companies have continued to operate: FRANMAX UAB and the separated-off MAXIMA International Sourcing UAB. There are around 130 employees working in the company.
In March, Maxima International Sourcing Poland, company‘s unit in Poland, was established. The office of the company is located in the capital city Warsaw.
Franmax continues to provide franchise and support services for the group’s companies in the areas of IT, supply-chain and store development.
