Bestway has made its first major appointment in Scotland since snapping up Bellevue Cash & Carry and Martex Cash & Carry last year.

The cash & carry giant has appointed Colin Smith as regional manager for Scotland for its food delivery and distribution service Bestway Direct.

Smith, who will look after Bestway's Best-one fascia in Scotland, originally joined Bellevue as a marketing assistant. He then joined Costco before being reappointed by Bellevue in 2008. "We are delighted to welcome Colin on board," said Best-one controller James Hall.
