JW Filshill has strengthened its buying team with the appointment of Edward Bentley (pictured) to handle the Impulse category (consisting of soft drinks, crisps and snacks).

Bentley, who will be based in Glasgow and report to category manager Derek Cowan, joins the wholesaler from SHS Sales & Marketing where he worked for nearly 10 years and was latterly National Account Manager with responsibility for Scotland.

Chris Miller, Group Commercial Director at JW Filshill, said Bentley “comes to us with significant knowledge of Filshill having dealt with us as a customer of SHS plus an impressive track record of working with high-profile FMCG brands”.
