Nichols is taking on a commercial director

Vimto maker Nichols has appointed a Coca-Cola Enterprises (CCE) sales exec as its commercial director. 

Andrew Milne, who has been CCE's northern sales director since 2008, joins Nichols next Monday (1 July) in the newly-created role. Prior to CCE, Milne was trading director at GlaxoSmithKline for eight years. 

Nichols chief executive Marnie Millard, appointed in March this year, said: "I am sure he (Milne) will have a huge impact on our mutual businesses. Andrew will report directly to me and will be instrumental in driving the continued growth of our UK organisation.”

Nichols reported a rise in full-year net profits and sales earlier this year
