Steve Irons returns to Bestway as head of contracts

Steve Irons has been appointed head of contracts (foodservice) at Bestway Wholesale.

The appointment marks Irons’ return to Bestway – he was senior contracts & key accounts manager between 2012 and 2016.

Irons (pictured) started his career in wholesale/retail as a trainee manager with CJ Lang & Son in 1995 (aged 21). At 23, he was appointed manager of its Martex Cash & Carry in Cupar, making him the youngest C&C manager in the country.

Over the next 16 years, he managed a number of CJ Lang’s cash & carries and latterly headed up its foodservice division before that part of the business was sold to Bestway in 2011. He then spent six years at Bestway, heading up its foodservice contract business, before moving to Booker’s foodservice division, Chef Direct, where he also spent six years.

In late 2021, he rejoined CJ Lang as wholesale sales director, and for the last year he was company-owned stores operations director.
