After a 33 year career at John Lewis Partnership, Mark Price has set out his intention to step down as Managing Director of Waitrose and Deputy Chairman and to leave the Partnership on 3 April 2016.
Mark has worked with Sir Charlie Mayfield, the Partnership's Chairman, to agree the timing of his leaving in the best interests of the Partnership.
Rob Collins, Waitrose's Retail Director, has been appointed to succeed Mark when he steps down. Rob has been with the Partnership for 22 years, initially with John Lewis in a number of senior roles before moving to Waitrose in 2007 to establish its e-commerce business. In 2010 Rob was appointed Personnel Director and in early 2012 was appointed Retail Director.
Sir Charlie Mayfield said: "Mark is pursuing new opportunities, but he will remain a passionate advocate of the Partnership and its ownership model. He has had a long and distinguished career with the Partnership and his leadership of Waitrose has seen outstanding success. As a member of the Partnership Board for 11 years and Deputy Chairman since 2013, Mark has played a key role in steering the Partnership and has been a valued and trusted colleague.
"Rob Collins has been a central figure in Waitrose's management team for a number of years and his strong leadership skills and operational success have ensured that he has been a central part of the Board's thinking on succession planning for some time. I'm confident that he will make the step-up to the Managing Director role quickly and effectively."
Bonnybridge based manufacturer E & R Moffat Ltd (Moffat Catering Equipment) is pleased to announce the appointment of Gordon McIntosh as the company’s new Managing Director.
Owner Principal William Moffat says, “The move comes as part of a natural progression for the company. Gordon will be responsible for overseeing and managing the day-to-day operation of the business. He takes up his new position at an exciting time in the company’s history, as we embark on a new phase of growth and development.”
Having served 23 years as MD himself, William went on to say, “I will continue to play an active and hands-on role in the future development of the business. Gordon and I have a shared vision for Moffat and I will be working closely with him and with our management and staff, as we build sales and enhance our product portfolio.”
Gordon, who was previously Commercial Director, is a Moffat man through and through. He has over 30 years’ service with the company, having started there straight from college. During his time he’s worked in just about every area of the business, joining the Board a couple of years ago. Earlier this year he was chosen to represent the company to meet Princess Anne, when she visited Strathcarron Hospice. This followed the opening of the hospice’s new kitchen, which Moffat was involved in, giving its products and time for free.
“I’m very much looking forward to working in my new role with William and the fantastic team we have at Bonnybridge,” he says. “Moffat has a great name in the industry, both with foodservice operators and our distributor partners. Our plans for the business will enhance the company’s position in the marketplace.”
