McColl’s hires Robbie Bell as chief financial officer
Convenience retailer McColl’s has appointed Robbie Bell to the position of chief financial officer.
Due to join the businesss on 17 January, Bell is stepping down from his current position as chief executive of motorway service operator Welcome Break following its takeover by Applegreen.
Bell joined Welcome Break in 2017, initially as chief financial officer. He became chief executive in early 2018 and managed the sale of the businesss and the ownership transition process.
Prior to Welcome Break, Bell was chief financial officer of Screwfix Direct from 2009. His previous roles also include UK finance director of Travelodge and a number of senior finance positions at Tesco. The latter included roles within the supermarket’s commercial buying division and finance director of convenience retailer Adminstore, which was acquired and integrated into the Tesco convenience estate.
McColl’s’ departing chief financial officer Simon Fuller will leave the company on 22 February following a handover period.
Jonathan Miller, McColl’s chief executive, said: “I am delighted to welcome someone of Robbie’s calibre and expertise to the board. With such a wealth of senior experience in retail and finance, he will add significant strength to the team. I am confident Robbie will make a valuable contribution as we deliver our strategy to enhance our neighbourhood convenience offer.”
