During Lewis’ time as trading director, Chris Lewis worked on several projects with the main board, including a new purchasing strategy.

Lewis helped grow the brand in recent years. In December, it reported a 9% increase in sales, claiming a “positive trading period” which followed on from a 19% rise in 2021.

Hoste said that Spar would now review its organisational structure and “recruit accordingly”.
