Scotfresh has appointed Mark Steven as its new managing director following the departure of Chris Gallacher last month, who joined United Wholesale as operations director.

Steven joins the Glasgow-based food retailer from EPoS supplier to the convenience and fuel sectors Point Four EPoS Solutions, where he had been sales director for 18 months.

Other food industry roles have included business development controller of Spar UK and regional sales manager of Palmer & Harvey.

He began his career at Botterills Convenience Stores where he worked for nine years, initially heading up its newly created IT department and rolling out EPoS to the estate. He moved on to work in operations and sales and marketing in the same group and became store controller, overseeing several convenience outlets.

Scotfresh has eight stores across Glasgow and the central belt of Scotland, with plans to grow the estate.
