New head of catering to drive growth at Bestway Wholesale
Bestway Wholesale, the foodservice distributor which owns BB Foodservice, Bestway and Batleys depots, has appointed David Livingstone as head of catering in a bid to drive further growth in the catering market.
Livingstone, who steps up to the role from his current position as regional operations manager and project manager of the Bestway depot hubs project, joined Bestway when it bought Batleys in 2005, bringing more than 15 years’ experience to the senior leadership team. David’s remit will now include managing the Bestway Wholesale delivered and collect catering propositions.
Dawood Pervez, managing director, Bestway Wholesale said: “We’re committed to ensuring we always deliver the best service to our customers and provide great products at even better prices. David’s appointment brings an increased focus on catering to our team, to help us progress even further in delivering what catering customers need.” Livingstone said: “I’m very excited to be taking up my new role as head of catering. The market has huge potential and appetite for growth, and I’m looking forward to putting plans into action, ensuring that potential is fully realised for Bestway Wholesale within catering.”
The appointment is the latest in a series of changes Bestway Wholesale has made to its evolving senior leadership team, following the recent appointment of Dawood Pervez to managing director.
Meanwhile Tony Holmes assumes a new role of retail director overseeing symbol, multiple accounts, and pet; assuming responsibility for new business development in addition, as James Hall announced his retirement from Bestway Wholesale from June 2019.
