Colin Crawshaw steps down as buying director of Crawshaw Group

Colin Crawshaw has stepped down as buying director of independent butchers Crawshaw Group after 40 years in the industry. 

He will continue to function as part-time head of buying to facilitate the appointment of a new buying director.

Colin said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my 40 years in the butcher industry and being part of the Crawshaw business for over 25 years. I think now is the right moment for me to step aside and hand over the responsibility to a full-time buying director. This will help the business to deliver the growth plans and I will do everything to support the new appointee during the transition.”

Chief executive Noel Collett said: “We wish to express our sincere gratitude to Colin for his drive, commitment and loyalty over the past 25 years with the group and wish him the very best for the future.

“Colin’s retirement provides the opportunity to appoint a new full-time buying director, which forms part of our core strategy to deliver our plan of opening 200 stores. This plan is progressing very well and is on track, so we continue to look to the future with great confidence and excitement.”
