In his new role, Town will work with the cold storage and transport divisions’ directors to extend services to existing customers and identify and develop new opportunities with other UK food processors and retailers.

Town, who joined Reed Boardall in 2001, has held a number of positions at the firm including warehouse manager and most recently operations manager.

Marcus Boardall, chief executive at Reed Boardall, said: “Having spent 18 years with Reed Boardall and risen through the ranks, Stev understands our business inside out and, therefore, he is ideally placed to work across the group, highlighting efficiencies and benefits for both existing and potential customers.

“Stev is a fantastic example of one of our many long serving team who through hard work and talent has built a career with us. This latest promotion is well-deserved recognition of his commitment and we are confident that his knowledge and enthusiasm will enable him to succeed in this role.”

Town said: “Reed Boardall is a fantastic family business. With a long-established team who really care about the service we provide to customers, we’ve been able to continue to grow despite some very tough market conditions. I believe that the integrated cold storage and transport services we provide from a single site offer a unique solution for food companies across the UK who need a reliable and responsive logistics partner, and I’m looking forward to getting the message out there.”
