He brings a wealth of experience, knowledge and leadership with over 30 years in the convenience retail trade. This is a great addition to the team. It strengthens our team and Robin joins us at a very exciting time as the business continues to move forward with renewed energy and pace. Our company-owned stores estate has been working on a back to basics initiative, whilst renewing our retail operations across our own retail estate.”
