We have continued to strengthen our Senior Leadership team through the promotion of Paula Grant to Commercial Director in our UK trading office.

Since 2008, Paula has held a variety of roles within the company, gaining extensive experience in ensuring the efficient supply of products through the supply chain, maintaining product ranges for many departments, and managing and developing each category. In her most recent position as Senior Trading Manager, Paula was to lead our Buying team to ensure we have the best products available in our food stores.

In her new role as Commercial Director, Paula will be responsible for all food ranges across the Channel Islands. She will succeed Nick Henderson, who, after over 13 years in the business, will retire in April 2022. We wish him our utmost thanks and gratitude, as well as a long, happy and well-deserved retirement!

Mike Rutter, Retail Managing Director, commented: “Paula has worked within the Food Retail Trading team in a variety of roles over the past 14 years, most recently as our Senior Trading Manager. I am pleased to see her progress even further in the business.”

“Nick will hand over his duties to Paula during April. This internal promotion is something to be very proud of and shows our commitment to internal succession.”

“I’m sure you will join me in congratulating Paula. I would like to record my personal and professional thanks to Nick for his excellent contribution to the business and wish him a happy retirement!”
