Fine food distributor RH Amar has appointed John Heynen to the new role of commercial director.
Heynen joins the High Wycombe-based company following eight years at brewer Molson Coors, during which time he held the roles of impulse sales director, logistics director and, most recently, sales director.
He’s also worked at PepsiCo Beverages International, where he was channel director and Walkers Snacks, where he was trading controller.
Heynen’s appointment follows the retirement of chief executive, David Mellor, following 25 years with the company.
RH Amar md Rob Amar said: “John will be responsible for running our recently expanded sales team and for delivering our growth plan over the next three years and beyond. We look forward to drawing on his experience to build an even stronger presence in the trade and to maximise the sales opportunities for our portfolio of supplier and RH Amar-owned brands.”
Amar’s father, Henry, remains in his role as Chairman.
