Musgrave GB has hired former Poundland head of format development Claire Bolton as Londis regional director for Scotland, Wales and the North of England.

Bolton, who joined earlier this month, also spent 13 years with CJ Lang in sales and marketing roles.

She has replaced long-standing regional director Brian McCaughey, who resigned after being appointed regional director for the North of England as part of a Londis sales team restructure earlier this year. Musgrave said he had left to become an independent retailer.

Last month, regional director for England and South Wales John Miller joined One Stop to head its operations.
