We see this as vital for the future of our business and I am excited by the challenges ahead.”
In his younger days Neil enjoyed playing rugby and on occasions still turns out for the Stowmarket Veterans XV. He is a fanatical supporter of Harlequins and England Rugby. He enjoys keeping fit through circuit training and spin and has two sons who delight in running him ragged on the squash court.
Group Managing Director Alan Ridealgh said “I am confident that Neil has the necessary qualities and experience to successfully undertake this new role with his in-depth knowledge of Muntons and first-hand experience of the markets that Muntons supply ensuring that he will continue to build on Muntons commercial successes.”
