Boughey Distribution names new finance director

Grocery warehousing and distribution provider, Boughey Distribution, has announced the appointment of Alex Hall as its new finance director.

He joins the company from GXO Logistics and takes over the role following the retirement of Ian Sherratt, who has held the finance director position for the last ten years.

Hall started his career with Wincanton as an assistant accountant in their food service business before progressing to the role of finance manager, supporting a number of the company’s largest contracts.

Following ten years with Wincanton, Hall moved to US firm XPO Logistics, initially as a finance business partner before becoming the head of finance of one of their UK business units.

“Alex brings with him an impressive 16-year track record of financial expertise and experience within our industry, all gained with major logistics companies,” Boughey Distribution managing director Angela Carus said.

“He is a great addition to our Board, bringing a wide perspective, ideas and energy to our business.”

Hall added: “This is a special business with long-standing partnerships with food industry customers, a committed team of people and a refreshing ability to work flexibly and quickly to react to customer needs.”

The news comes after the logistics company announced the appointment of Angela Carus as its new managing director earlier this year.
