Creed Foodservice has promoted former sales & marketing director Miles Roberts to managing director.
Roberts has been with the Cheltenham-based wholesaler for over six years, prior to which he was in a sales strategy role at Brakes. He has also previously worked at PepsiCo for six years and Sainsbury for three years.
Commenting on his new role, he said: “I am looking forward to further supporting our great business.”
In addition, Richard Shephard has been promoted from head of sales to director of sales. He joined the company nearly six years ago as Consortia account manager and worked his way up to his new role.
The promotions follow the news that Creed Foodservice’s former managing director Philip de Ternant is now chairman of the wholesaler while also taking on the role of group chairman of Country Range Group.
He commented: “It’s a huge honour to be appointed the new CRG group chairman and I’m excited to get started and help our members continue to be as competitive as possible in this ever-changing and ever-challenging industry.
“I’ve been a board member at CRG for over 10 years now, so I already feel like part of the family, but I’m eager to work even more closely with the wider team and new members as we all work towards our future plans and ambitious goals.”
Creed Foodservice is a founding member of Country Range Group, and has been delivering multi-temperature catering products to chefs and caterers since 1972. It has distribution centres in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, Ilkeston, Derbyshire and High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, offering national coverage to the care, education, leisure destination, and hospitality sectors across the UK.
