Cheshire-based Boughey Distribution has appointed Alex Hall (pictured) as its new finance director.
He joins from GXO Logistics and takes over following the retirement of Ian Sherratt who has held the post for the last 10 years.
Hall will lead the company’s finance team responsible for financial planning and analysis and accounting activities, as well as supporting the business to deliver positive financial results. He will also report on Boughey’s financial performance to its owner, NWF Group.
Hall began his career with Wincanton as an assistant accountant in its foodservice business before progressing to the role of finance manager, supporting a number of the company’s largest contracts.
Following 10 years with Wincanton, he moved to XPO Logistics, initially as a finance business partner before becoming head of finance of a UK business unit. He went on to hold this position for two other XPO units before moving to GXO Logistics as part of the company’s spin-off from XPO in 2021.

Boughey MD Angela Carus said: “Alex brings with him an impressive 16-year track-record of financial expertise and experience within our industry, all gained with major logistics companies.
“He is a great addition to our board, bringing a wide perspective, ideas and energy.”
Added Hall: “Taking up my inaugural directorship with an established and successful company like Boughey is a real opportunity for me. This is a special business with long-standing partnerships with food industry customers, a committed team of people and a refreshing ability to work flexibly and quickly to react to customer needs.”
Alex is a CIMA qualified accountant and is currently studying for an Executive MBA at the University of Manchester’s Alliance Business School.
Away from work, he is a Wigan Athletic fan and part of three generations of season ticket holders along with his young son and father.
