John Baines to retire from Unitas next year

John Baines, trading director of Unitas Wholesale, will retire from the business in May 2022. 

Baines (pictured) has played a leading role in the buying group since he joined Nisa-Today’s in 1994. As part of the senior team he was pivotal in working with the executive in both the 2012 demerger of Nisa-Today’s and more recently in 2018 in the merger of Today’s Group and Landmark Wholesale to form Unitas.

Baines commented: “I have spent many enjoyable years working in the wholesale sector and have made many friends along the way; however, it is now time for me to spend more quality time with my family.”

John Kinney, MD of Unitas, added: “I have worked with John since I joined Today’s back in 2011 and he has been instrumental in the formation of Unitas. I fully respect John’s wishes to retire and thank him for the support he will continue to provide while we recruit his replacement.”
