Musgrave Group plc has announced that Noel Keeley has been appointed as CEO designate of Musgrave. Keeley, current MD of Musgrave Wholesale Partners, will take up the prestigious position on 1 January 2020, following a handover period with outgoing CEO Chris Martin. This follows a recruitment process which began with the announcement earlier this year, following Chris Martin’s announcement that he would retire from the business.
In his current role as Managing Director of Musgrave Wholesale Partners, Noel Keeley is responsible for Musgrave’s wholesale business across the island of Ireland. He transformed Musgrave MarketPlace, which has become Ireland’s leading wholesale business for retailers, SMEs and a one-stop shop for the hospitality sector. He has also led the growth of SuperValu and Centra in Northern Irelan, and he was responsible for the acquisition last year of fine food specialist La Rousse Foods. Noel Keeley joined Musgrave in 2005 and was Group HR Director before he took up his current role in 2010.
“We would like to thank Chris Martin for his leadership over the past fifteen years,” Hartery added, “having firmly established Musgrave as Ireland’s leading food retail, wholesale and foodservice company.”
