John Mills, Deputy Managing Director of Unitas Wholesale, will leave the company at the end of 2019.
Unitas formed a year ago, in November 2018, when Landmark Wholesale and Today’s Group merged. Landmark boss Mills took on the newly-created role of Deputy Managing Director to oversee the integration between the two businesses.
“The integration has been effectively managed and Unitas is making great progress with both member and supplier feedback being positive,” said Darren Goldney, Unitas Wholesale Managing Director. “The group has excellent members, is engaging with more suppliers than ever before, and is growing both capabilities and sales.
“John has been a massive part of our success to date and I’d like to personally thank him for his contribution and wish him the very best for the future. He has shown brilliant leadership and teamwork, and will be hugely missed.”
Current Retail Director John Kinney becomes Sales and Marketing Director, effective from 1 January 2020.
“Unitas is in good shape and good hands,” said John Mills. “The executive team led by Darren is experienced and passionate about supporting our members to be competitive in a tough and uncertain market. I wish them, our members and our suppliers every success in the future.”
