Jenks has appointed Jon Stowe as supply chain director for its UK-wide distribution and logistics operation.
His role will include managing the supply chain, ensuring best practice across all categories and building the infrastructure to take the business and brands forward.
Stowe joins Jenks from his previous position as logistic director for Spar stores across the UK at AF Blakemore. He has also held senior roles at Booker and Wincanton. He will spearhead the development of a new distribution centre to be available in the spring of 2008.
Ambrose McGinn, joint managing director of Jenks, said: “We are delighted to have someone of Jon’s undoubted calibre joining the business as we develop and grow Jenks’ supply chain strategic capability and we expect him to have an immediate and positive impact on our proposition.”
Stowe said: “Jenks is the number one in the market and from my perspective that means being the ‘best in business’ when it comes to the supply chain. It’s an exciting challenge and I’m delighted to be part of the Jenks team during this dynamic period.”
