Family-run independent wholesaler Bellevue has restructured its senior management team as it prepares to grow.

Frank Fraser, previously finance controller, has been made finance director responsible for day-to-day running of the business and has become a board member. Gerry Fraser, previously trading controller, has been promoted to trading director and joins the board. Colin Smith, currently marketing manager at Costco Wholesale UK in Edinburgh, has been appointed to the new position of head of sales and marketing.

MD Graham Benson and his brother George Benson, commercial director, remain in their positions but the management restructure will enable them to invest more time in developing new strategies and services for the Scotland-based business, which turns over £40m a year.
