Ruane, who has been with the business for eight years as regional development manager, has assumed responsibility for the west of Scotland and northern England territories. She also takes charge of Filshill’s Click & Collect operation.

Meanwhile, Feeney, who joined the business nearly four years ago, has responsibility for the east and north of Scotland territories, including the islands.

Announcing the promotions on International Women’s Day, Craig Brown, chief sales & marketing officer at JW Filshill, said: “This is the perfect time to announce these new appointments and celebrate the success not just of Shirley and Elaine in progressing their careers with Filshill but also the many other inspirational women within our business who make such a valuable contribution.

“We are an inclusive, welcoming wholesaler and embrace diversity across all areas of the business and we have worked hard to send out a strong message that Filshill is a modern employer that offers career progression to those who want to challenge and develop themselves – regardless of gender.

“Both Shirley and Elaine have worked hard in recent years to earn their promotions and we look forward to watching them progress even further as they lead their respective teams to develop our KeyStore convenience store division, working with ambitious and tech-savvy retailers who want to grow their businesses.

“Having such strong and experienced regional development teams in place, as more retailers choose KeyStore as the best solution for achieving increased profit and margin, gives us confidence in stimulating growth for our brand and customers in a competitive convenience marketplace.”
