ABP Food Group has appointed Chris Martin as a non-executive director to its board.
A well-known figure within Ireland’s grocery industry, Chris Martin has over 35 years’ experience of working in retail and consumer facing businesses in Britain and Ireland.
In 2019, after 15 years, he stepped down as CEO of Musgrave, the operator of the SuperValu, Centra and Musgrave marketplace brands in Ireland, which is also active in Spain’s retail and food sectors.
Prior to this, he was CEO of Mothercare plc, Group Finance Director of Storehouse plc and had various roles at PizzaHut and ASDA. Martin is a chartered accountant, fellow of the Institute of Grocers and a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
ABP’s Larry Goodman said he was delighted to welcome Chris Martin to the board.
