The family-run foodservice wholesaler has announced that Tom Curtin, formerly head of systems & operations, has taken the role of technology director; Norman Bannister, previously head of sales, has become sales director; and Craig Newton, formerly head of purchasing, is now buying director.

Curtin has been key to the adoption of technology within the business over the past seven years and is focused on plans to ramp up the wholesaler’s use of technologies to provide the best customer experience possible and support the growth and development of the business.

Bannister has played an important role in Dunsters Farm’s growth over the past five years and is focused on delivering on its ambitious targets.

Newton has been with the wholesaler for three years. During that time he has ensured that the buying function is operating successfully and has worked closely with Bannister to help secure sales growth in both existing and new markets.

Hannah Barlow, managing director of the Bury-based business, commented: “All three of these members of our team have been instrumental both before and throughout the pandemic.

“During their time with us they have demonstrated their commitment to the business. As a team we are thrilled that they will be joining the other directors as we move into another exciting phase for Dunsters.

“We are confident that these changes will place us in a strong position for the future.”
