Leadership changes at Nisa

Nisa’s Head of Cost to Serve Kim Clarkson has been appointed Head of Partner Services to help drive and implement its long-term business plans

Reporting into MD Peter Batt, Kim will be responsible for shaping the future direction of the format and development proposition, overseeing stock control, logistics and supply chain functions. Kim joined Nisa in 2017 and has more than 20 years of experience within the retail and wholesale sector.

Kim will be supported in her role by Karen Hopkinson, who has recently been appointed to head up its independent supply chain and logistics network, as well as managing the relationship with its delivery partner, DHL. Prior to this, Karen spent time in senior operational and category roles at Co-op, Iceland, Welcome Break and latterly Morrisons, where she led the rollout of their MLocal stores.

“Both Kim and Karen bring a wealth of experience across wholesale, retail and logistics, and I’m delighted to announce their new roles within the business,” said Peter Batt. “They have both played a key part in strengthening both the Co-op and Nisa proposition and will be instrumental in helping to shape and deliver on our ambitions to be the wholesale partner of choice.

“Our retailers are at the heart of the decisions we make, and the work Kim will be leading, alongside an enhanced management team and the strong backing from Co-op, will set us in good stead to deliver our long-term ambitions. I’m excited about what the future holds for Nisa.”

These appointments are the first to be announced by MD Peter Batt as he bolsters his senior leadership team.
