Addo Food Group chief operating officer Deborah Bolton has been promoted to chief executive, replacing former boss Chris Peters.
Bolton had helped Addo grow from strength to strength and earned the respect and endorsement of her colleagues, clients and fellow board members, said the company. Her constant focus on the needs of the group had played a central role in driving significant improvements and increasing turnover, it added.
Commenting on her appointment, Bolton said: “It will be a huge privilege to lead the Addo Food Group, a business with great heritage across its brands and a bright future. Our focus will remain on being category leaders and serving our customers, suppliers, staff and stakeholders to continue to develop long-term growth.”
