New trading director joins Ramsden Group
8th February 2018
Dee Bee, the Grimsby-based wholesale operator, has appointed a new trading director.
Andy Morrison, brings a wealth of experience in the fast moving consumer goods sector in the UK.
Having begun his career in the retail sector with several well-known grocery chains, he moved into sales, commercial and eventually trade marketing.
Prior to joining Dee Bee, part of the family-owned Ramsden Group, he spent five years as wholesale controller with a leading distributor.
Andy, originally from the North East, said: “I have spent my working life in fast moving consumer goods - in wholesale, retail as well as the foodservice sector - and I am delighted to be taking up this new challenge with Dee Bee, a very well respected and great business strongly supported by the Today’s Group.”

The vacancy arose after former trading director Andy Taylor took up a new role as retail director overseeing Ramsdens Home Interiors store on Cleethorpe Road, Grimsby, and the Fiveways convenience store, which opened just over a year ago.
Dee Bee operates wholesale depots in Grimsby's Adam Smith Street and Hull's Leads Road, where it returned in April 2016 after a 25 year absence. Each stock a range of around 6,000 products and have a customer base throughout the north totalling more than 2,000, consisting mostly of retailers, pubs, restaurants and cafes.
It has seen considerable investment in growth and efficiencies recently, with the acquisition of a North Bank drinks specialist and the introduction of stock management technology to aid order picking for delivered goods.
