Today’s Group Chairman, Simon Hannah and the board of directors of the buying group this morning announced the appointment of Darren Goldney (pictured) as managing director.
Goldney, formerly of Palmer & Harvey, will join the business from November 13, 2017.
“This is a key appointment for the Group and Darren will join an already strong team at Today’s Group central office which has been admirably led for the past two years by John Schofield as interim MD,” a Today’s spokesperson said. “As per plan, John will now return to the crucial position of Finance Director, supporting Darren and the team.
“In a changing wholesale environment, Darren brings experience and a track record of success through collaboration, from his tenure with both large and smaller organisations in Coca Cola European Partners and Whitworths Ltd, and more latterly in a major national wholesale organisation, Palmer and Harvey, serving all customer types.
“The Today’s board is very much looking forward to welcoming Darren to the Group.”
