THE West Country based bakery, Warrens, which employs some 440 people across Devon and Cornwall, has announced its new board of directors. The board, led by Mark Sullivan, as chairman, gives the company a platform for growth and future development.
The new team also includes Jason Jobling (director and chief operating officer), Alex Martin (director, retail operations), Simon Toft (finance director) and Nick Straw (director, property).
Mr Sullivan said: "Warrens has a wonderful heritage – it is the oldest Cornish pasty company in the world. It also has a range of excellent award-winning products and highly skilled staff. The challenge has been to combine this heritage with the commercial structure and skills needed to compete successfully in the 21st century. We now have an improved liquidity position along with a team of highly experienced directors who will transform the business into a market leader."
