Thomas Ridley Foodservice seeks a new sales director

Thomas Ridley Foodservice is looking for a new sales director.

“Having invested £8 million into the business in recent years we are now seeking a sales director to craft our future sales plan and to then successfully deliver it,” says the advert. “Within our bureaucratic-free organisation this is a fantastic and rare opportunity for a true leader to shape our sales culture.”

This role has become available due to progression of the existing sales director Steven Lyons.

Thomas Ridley Foodservice currently operates predominantly within the east and south-east of England from its two depots – one near Bury St Edmunds where its head office is based and the other at Paddock Wood, Kent. It employs 270 people and distributes approximately 40,000 cases daily.

The company’s 2021 full-year sales are expected to be more than £60 million, and its aspiration is to achieve annual sales of over £90 million within the next five years. “Having grown sales in excess of 30% during the previous three years (before the pandemic) we would like to find a seriously dynamic person who really can make a difference,” says the advert.
