C J Lang & Son Ltd has announced the appointment of Roy Williams as their new Independent Sales Controller.

Williams has also worked within the Scottish FMCG market for almost 30 years, helping establish and build business within the likes of Whitbread, Interbrew and First Milk.

He joins C J Lang & Son Ltd from United Wholesale Scotland Ltd, where he managed the process of introducing new stores in the Day-Today group in his role as Sales and Project Manager.

"I have had many years dealing with C J Lang as a supplier, so I jumped at the chance to work for the company when it arose,” Williams said on his appointment.

“I am especially interested in the independent sector because it’s about real people with passion developing their own businesses, standing behind their own counters, building relationships and sales with customers.

“My aim is to help guide and develop the people working for me and use my passion for people to build on the great business that is C J Lang,” he said.

Williams will report directly to C J Lang & Son Sales Director Bill Mair when he takes up the reins on 6 May.

Bill Mair said: “I am thrilled to have secured Roy in the position of Sales Controller, and have no doubt that he will be a great asset to the C J Lang & Son business.”

There are over 300 stores in the SPAR Scotland estate
