Country Range Group confirms Thomas Ridley exit
The Country Range Group has confirmed the exit of Thomas Ridley with immediate effect following the company’s acquisition by Bidfood.
Country Range Group Chief Executive Martin Ward said: “Our Group is extremely close and it’s always a shame when we lose a member, especially one as long standing as Thomas Ridley. We wish Justin and the wider Thomas Ridley team best wishes for the future.”
“Acquisitions are part of business and although it’s not ideal, we take it as a compliment that people are taking note of our member’s values, businesses and success. It means we’re doing something right. The fact that our members become attractive propositions to the takeover merchants comes with the territory. Our job is to continue to support and grow true family-owned, independent businesses.”
