UK: Bibendum unveils Waitrose man for new role
Andrew Shaw will take up the newly-created role in the Autumn
Bibendum has appointed a Waitrose wine buyer to take up the newly-created role of head of buying.
Andrew Shaw, wines buying manager at Waitrose since 2007, will start as the London-based supplier's first head of buying this Autumn, Bibendum confirmed late yesterday (23 July). His remit will include overseeing Bibendum's wine range, supplier relationships and new product development, within its commercial team.
"There are very few companies I would have left Waitrose to join, but Bibendum stood out as the most dynamic wine business currently operating in the UK and I am very excited to be joining the team,” said Shaw.
Kirstie Papworth, Bibendum’s commercial director, added: “I am delighted that Andrew has decided to join what is already a very strong buying team."
