New managing director lined up at Woods Foodservice

Lana Bhikha has been installed as deputy managing director at Woods Foodservice as part of a reshuffle at the top

Bhikha was previously commercial director for the award-winning wholesaler and will be working alongside existing Managing Director Darren Labbett as he moves to becoming chairman.

Woods Foodservice has also made another senior appointment with Paul Disborough’s arrival as finance director.

“Trying to stay one step ahead and maintaining a focus on the future is integral to our success and how we operate as a business, so I’m delighted to see Lana step up to deputy managing director,” Labbett says.

“Not only does she have incredible knowledge about the business, the standards we insist on, and the needs of our customers, we share a vision for Woods and its huge potential.

“Lana’s rapid rise through the ranks has been a real blessing for the business. She joined all the way back in 2013 in an entry level position and instantly displayed a level of passion for the business that I’d not seen before, making a huge impression and progressing quickly.

“With Lana taking on this new role, alongside the experience and expertise Paul is going to offer as FD, I’m really excited for the future.”
