Dunns Food and Drinks are pleased to confirm the appointment of Jamie Coghill. 

Jamie Coghill has joined the company as its new sales director. Coghill brings a wealth of experience within the drinks trade having worked previously with Anheuser-Busch, Miller Brands, Halewood International and Whyte & Mackay.  He has previously worked in positions as Director of Sales for the National On-Trade and HORECA.

Coghill will be working to further build and improve the strategy of the company, as well as increase the company’s share of the delivered wholesale foodservice and licensed trade markets in Scotland.

Coghill’s appointment comes as the company goes through a £1.5 million warehousing expansion and follows acquisitions in recent years of specialist craft beer, spirits, and food wholesalers including Dameck, Hotsauce and Rue Italia.

Jim Rowan, Managing Director said:
“We are delighted that Jamie is joining us to help us continue to improve the support we offer to our customers. He has a huge amount of experience in the drinks industry and will help our sales team ensure we are offering current and prospective customers the best possible experience.”

Jamie Coghill said:
“This is an exciting time to be part of a growing business. As a wholesaler, Dunns offers a real antidote to the national operators – a more personalised experience with all requirements taken care of.   I am enthused by the clear goals of the company and I can see there are lots of opportunities.  My job is now to make sure the sales teams have the right support to achieve these goals.”
