Kirsty Cooper replaces Aoife Kenny as Unitas commercial director

Unitas Wholesale has announced the appointment of Kirsty Cooper as commercial director following the departure of Aoife Kenny, who formerly held the post.

Cooper (pictured), who will join the group on 13 November, is currently commercial director at Acosta Europe. Prior to that, she held senior roles at Capri-Sun, Britvic, CCEP, Red Bull, Greene King and Ramsden International.

Unitas MD John Kinney commented: “I am delighted that Kirsty has accepted the offer to be our commercial director. We have ambitious plans for Unitas, and Kirsty will be instrumental in helping to deliver on these.”

Kenny said: “After 18 enjoyable months, the time is now right for me to move on to new challenges. It’s been a pleasure to work alongside John and the team as we’ve reviewed many different areas of the business including central services, own brand and digital transformation.

“It’s been brilliant getting to know the members and suppliers, and after a successful conference, where we delivered the new strategic vision for Unitas, it feels like a good time to leave the roll-out of the strategies in the very capable hands of John and team. I wish them all the very best for the future.”

Kinney added: “Aoife has been instrumental in the formation of the Unitas strategy and has been a great asset to our business. I thank her for all her hard work, and we wish her every success in her next career move.”
