Ridgeons has appointed Iain Bell as the group’s new trading director. Previously with the John Lewis Partnership, Mr Bell brings a wealth of trading experience to the company.

Commenting on his appointment to the Ridgeons Group, Mr Bell said: “I’m looking forward to the opportunities that working for Ridgeons will present. Securing repeat business and delivering outstanding customer service is very much at the core of everything Ridgeons does. I am looking forward to utilising my experience to address operational challenges and maximise trading opportunities as business confidence grows across the region and the market continues its recovery from the recent economic downturn.”
