Brakes Group, a leading supplier to the food service sector in the UK, Ireland, France and Sweden, has announced the appointment of Ton Christiaanse as its new UK CEO, replacing Phil Wieland who will be leaving the business to pursue other interests early in 2017. Christiaanse brings with him a wealth of food experience having held leadership roles in a number of organisations, including Unilever, Farm Frites and Vion, and most recently as Chairman of AK Stoddart, the leading Scottish beef processor. As one of the UK’s food experts Ton will also remain a strategic advisor to the Acoura board, the UK’s largest independent provider of risk solutions to the food and drink industry.

Christiaanse, who will report to Group CEO Ken McMeikan, will assume responsibility from Wieland on 1 January 2017 after spending time being introduced to the specifics of the business and operations in the wider group.

It has also been confirmed that Duncan Gibson, Managing Director Corporate, Public and Logistics, will leave Brakes early in 2017 after six years with the business. Gibson’s team will report directly to Christiaanse.
