Food wholesaler
Booker
has appointed two senior finance professionals as non-executive directors.

Cobra founder Karan Bilimoria and former BAT senior exec Andrew Cripps have
joined Booker.

Both have a great deal of financial and business knowledge, said Booker
chairman Richard Rose: ‘Karan also brings his deep understanding of the beverage
industry with a strong consumer-facing brand while Andrew is a seasoned
non-executive director. We are delighted that we have attracted businessmen of
their calibre.’

The company went through a reverse takeover earlier in the year, brining
together Blueheath and Booker holding company Giant TopCo, creating a business
with over £3bn in sales.
