Unitas appoints Aoife Kenny as commercial director

Unitas Wholesale has appointed Aoife Kenny as commercial director. She will take up the role in September.

Kenny (pictured) was most recently interim head of foodservice at AF Blakemore, and she has also held senior roles with Central Co-op, Heart of England Co-op, Enterprise Foods, PepsiCo, Burton’s Biscuits and Kepak.

Her appointment at Unitas follows the recent announcement of the retirement of John Baines as trading director. She will join the board and will be responsible for both the trading and commercial areas of the business.

John Kinney, managing director of Unitas, commented: “I am absolutely delighted to welcome Aoife to Unitas at such an important time in our development as we seek to re-shape the organisation to become more member-centric and cement our place as the UK’s leading buying group.

“Aoife has the skills, values and experience that we were looking for, gained during a successful career across wholesale, foodservice, retail and manufacturing.”
