Mr Muir will be taking over the role from 29 June. He has an extensive and varied sales background, most recently working for 20th Century Fox, and prior to this with Danone and Coca Cola.
“We are delighted to welcome Josh to the team at this important stage of the company’s development,” said Nick Cornwell, managing director. “He will continue to build on our loyal UK customer base – especially now, post lock down, as we are finding more consumers switching into food and drink on-the-go products. It seems that more people are now taking a new approach to their eating and drinking out of home, to help keep themselves safe.”
Mr Muir commented: “I was already a user of black + blum products and have always admired their approach to sustainable product design. Working with a smaller team, so obviously passionate about what they do, is something I am going to greatly enjoy. I am also looking forward to meeting our retail customers and to learning all about this exciting industry.”
