Today’s Group has announced that managing director Bill Laird has died following a long battle with illness. He was 54.
Bill spent his entire career within the grocery and retail sectors, working for companies including Asda, Texas Homecare, Woolworths and Somerfield.
Bill was instrumental in Today’s de-merger from Nisa-Today’s and the formation of the Today’s Group in January 2012.
In a statement, Today’s Group said:
“He will be greatly missed by his team in Doncaster, members of Today’s Group, the board of directors of TWS Ltd and all his many friends in the wider wholesale, retail and supplier community.”
John Schofield will continue in his current role as acting Managing Director of Today’s Wholesale Services Limited.
