Mark McCammond, managing director at Appleby Westward, the regional distribution company and Spar wholesaler for the South-West of England, is leaving the company later this year for a new position with Spar.
McCammond (pictured), who joined Appleby Westward in December 2011, will take up a new job, as retail director of the Henderson Group, operators of the Spar franchise in Northern Ireland.
He previously worked for Henderson’s as retail director for eight years until 2009, when he moved to become Regional Managing Director for 159 stores within Sainsbury’s convenience division.
He moved to Appleby Westward as managing director in December 2011. Leo Crawford, chairman of Appleby Westward, said: “The Board wishes to thank Mark for the excellent and professional service he has provided to the company and wish him the very best in the next phase of his career.
“Appleby Westward has experienced strong top line and bottom line growth under Mark’s stewardship and is well positioned for further growth into the future.”
McCammond will leave Appleby Westward in mid-September and will continue as MD in the intervening period. The wholesaler has already started the search to find his successor.
