David Pitron has replaced Andy Davis as trading director for BP's UK convenience retail division.

Pitron has worked for BP for nearly five years and for the past three-and-a-half as convenience trading director in Australia and New Zealand. He has also worked for Compass Group and M&S. "David brings a wealth of industry and BP experience," said BP's UK convenience retail director Richard Harding.

Davis left the role at the beginning of the year to become BP's head of European buying and supply chain, overseeing BP's convenience retail sector across 10 EU countries.
