Bestway’s Chief Retail Officer steps down

Andy Cresswell

Bestway Retail’s Chief Retail Officer Andy Cresswell will leave the company next January, two years after joining the business from MRH.

Bestway said Cresswell had “moved the retail estate forward and led franchise stores within the Bestway Wholesale business through a period of significant growth”.

The company is now on the lookout for a Head of Stores to take charge of the company-operated estate and help shape Bestway’s overall retail offer.

Thanking Cresswell, Bestway Wholesale boss Dawood Pervez said: “The Bestway Group board is immensely grateful to Andy for the stability and vision he has brought over the last two years. Much has changed at Bestway Retail under his tenure-ship and Andy has been a valued member of our leadership team and pivotal in driving our retail strategy over this period.”
