Today’s Group has appointed Francesca Sabin as head of on-trade, following the retirement of Steven Graham.
Sabin will be responsible for driving forward the on-trade division, which has 27 independent on-trade members supplying 21,000 UK pubs, clubs, restaurants and hotels.
Bill Laird, managing director of Today’s Group, said after the demise of Waverley TBS in 2012 there are now few established routes to market for manufacturers.
“This is an unhealthy position for us all. We have created a new presence in the sector providing licensed outlets with a wider choice and range of services via our members. 2015 is an exciting year for us and we already have a number of new initiatives in place,” he added.
