CJ Lang strengthens its independent retailer sales team

CJ Lang & Son has appointed Neil Ogilvie and Craig Lynn to strengthen its independent retailer sales team.

Ogilvie joins as a business development manager, covering Aberdeenshire to Kirkcaldy. He has been in retail for over 30 years, and was most recently a business development manager at Costcutter.

Lynn returns to CJ Lang as head of recruitment and key accounts. He has been involved with convenience retailing for the last 20 years, originally starting his career with CJ Lang as a field sales executive and then moving to United Wholesale Scotland in 2015 to head up recruitment and store development. In his new role at CJ Lang, he will be responsible for new business SPAR accounts and wholesale business.

Wholesale sales director Steve Irons commented: “These two new appointments reflect the growth of the company over the last 12 months and allow the business to put dedicated focus on retail recruitment.

“We now have a full-strength, excellent team in place to ensure CJ Lang continues to be Scotland’s leading symbol group. We have ambitious plans to grow the independent side of our business and are positioned well to deliver a truly Scottish offering to grow market share and to support our customers further.”

Based in Dundee, CJ Lang & Son is Scotland’s largest independent retailing and distribution business. It services over 350 independent and company-owned SPAR stores.
