Landmark has appointed Richard Ward trading controller at the company's central office in Milton Keynes.
He is responsible for confectionery and soft drink categories and reports to senior trading controller Richard Booth.
Ward moved from T&S Stores which he joined in 1995 and where, he has been category manager for soft drinks, crisps and snacks for the past 18 months.
"I am very happy to be joining a strong company with lots of opportunities," said Ward. "It is our role at Landmark central office to ensure we meet our members expectations by providing a competitive edge which, together with their local knowledge, allows them to compete successfully."
Ward was impressed by Landmark's growth figures for soft drinks and confectionery in 2002 and said he would use his knowledge of the c-store market to drive these categories forward with strong promotional activity during 2003. Booth added: "Richard's experience in these key impulse areas will be invaluable."
