Rasmden announces retirement

Dudley Ramsden, founder and executive chairman of Nisa-Today’s, has announced that he intends to retire at the company’s AGM on November 28.
He told a meeting of the Nisa-Today’s (Holdings) Board Limited that it was always his intention to retire on completion of the proposed merger with Costcutter and that, despite the merger not now taking place, the reasons for his retirement remained valid.
In particular, after 30 years commitment to Nisa-Today’s, he said he wished to spend more time with his young family and in helping his two elder sons in the family businesses.
Ramsden founded the Nisa buying group for independent retailers with partner Peter Garvin in 1977, and added the Today’s Group for wholesalers in 1987.
The Board expressed its appreciation of what it said had been “a momentous and unrivalled contribution to the independent sector” and proposed Ramsden’s appointment as non-executive president of the group, to perform an ambassadorial role in the future.
Ramsden said he remained passionately committed to the independent sector, Nisa-Today’s and its members, and that if at the forthcoming AGM the shareholders confirmed his appointment he would look forward to helping the new team, providing a blend of continuity and new vision for Nisa-Today’s.
