Former Londis sales and retail director Tony Riddy has joined the development team at store designer Uno Retail Solutions.

Riddy started his career

in retail when he joined

the Sainsbury's graduate

management trainee programme. He went on to work at Amalgamated Foods and has spent much of his career in various roles at Londis before it became Musgrave Budgens Londis.

In his most recent role as sales and retail director, Riddy was responsible for a team of 70 people. He will now be working closely with Uno's MBL account.

Uno group chief executive officer Dominic Perks said: "I am confident Tony will have a significant and visible impact on the company within a very short time frame, particularly given the strength of the relationships he has with key decision-makers at MBL. MBL is one of Uno's key target accounts and this appointment emphasises the commitment Uno is making to aligning itself to MBL's needs."
