United Biscuits has promoted its UBUK grocery sales director Peter Utting to UBUK sales director, the position to be vacated by Martin Totty. There will be a handover period as Totty does not leave the firm until the end of February.
Utting joined UBUK from Walkers, where he was business growth director, in January 2004 and has since overseen UB’s sales within the grocery sector.
Jacob’s sales director, James Mayer, has become UBUK grocery sales director.
Utting and Mayer will lead the integration of the UB and Jacob’s sales functions in the UK. The integrated business will create a £1bn biscuits and snacks company.
