Spar UK appoints new head of retail

Spar UK has announced the appointment of Ian Taylor as its new head of retail.

Based at Spar’s central office in Harrow, Taylor will join the company next month and will be responsible for implementing and influencing its Inspiring Growth strategy by increasing store numbers and developing formats. 

Taylor joins Spar UK from The Co-Operative Farms, where he was head of commercial operations and sales and marketing.

Commenting on his new role Taylor said: "I am very excited to be joining Spar, where I am committed to increasing store numbers as part of the organisation’s 10-point Inspiring Growth strategy.

"This is a fantastic brand to be working with given Spar’s 55-year history in the UK and the fact that globally Spar is the largest food retailer in the world, and I am confident that my experience can help to drive the brand forward."

Debbie Robinson, Spar UK managing director, added: "Ian’s strong reputation for developing a growing, profitable and sustainable business by creating a strategic partnership approach to protect the security of long term supply makes him the ideal candidate to join Spar UK in this extremely important and prestigious role."
