Former Booker chief executive Charles Wilson has joined the board of Menzies Distribution after purchasing a 10% stake in the company.
Wilson headed up Booker for 15 years, overseeing its transformational growth to a leading UK wholesaler which later merged with Tesco in 2018.
At that point, Wilson joined the Big 4 grocer’s executive team.
