Claire Bolton is to step down as sales and marketing director of Scottish Spar wholesaler CJ Lang.

Bolton will leave the business in early May to relocate to the North West of England.

“We are very sorry to be losing Claire as she has made such a fantastic contribution to the business,” said MD Scott Malcolm. “The independent Spar division and our retailer relationships are vitally important to us, so recruiting a high-calibre successor is at the top of our agenda.”
