Jerry Marwood has been appointed as a non-executive director of field marketing agency exPD8.

The outgoing Spar MD will advise the agency on promotional compliance in convenience stores.

“We have been very successful in growing our business in non-food categories, and Jerry’s appointment will underpin our expansion into grocery,” said the company’s co-founder, Mark Thurgood.

Marwood will step down as MD of Spar in September after nine years at the helm. Earlier this month the group named Debbie Robinson, a former marketing chief at The Co-operative Group, as his successor.
