Appleby Westward, Spar’s regional distribution company in the South West, has appointed Dean Mason as director of stores.
Mason joins Spar after 16 years at Midcounties Co-op, where he most recently was head of central operations. He also held the positions of head of supply chain, operational lead and deputy head of control operations.
Before joining the Co-op he spent just under three years working as a marketing administrator for Somerfield.

He succeeds Steve Goswell, who leaves the company after two years in the position.
The news comes as Spar Harworth announced the reopening of its store after a six-week refurbishment.
The refurbishment includes a butchery counter and food-to-go offering along, as well as Spar’s freshly ground Fairtrade 100% Arabica coffee brand, Cheeky Coffee.
