Wincanton man joins Suttons

Graeme McFaull was appointed as chairman of the Suttons Group earlier this month. His appointment follows the untimely death of Michael Sutton, the former longstanding chairman, in May 2015.

“The Group board is unanimously agreed that Graeme McFaull is an ideal candidate to chair Suttons at this exciting stage in the company’s history,” said CEO John Sutton.

“Graeme has significant experience in the management and chairmanship of logistics and supply chain businesses. He understands the competitiveness of our industry and also has a strong empathy with our culture and commitment to serving our customers.

Graeme was formerly chief executive of Wincanton, where he was instrumental in securing the company’s position as a major force in European logistics. Graeme is currently involved as a non-executive with a UK construction group and as chairman of a logistics real estate investment company. He is a chartered management accountant and spent his early career in senior finance roles with PepsiCo and Cargill.

“I am delighted and privileged to become chairman of a company with such a rich heritage as Suttons,” said Graeme. “I look forward to being part of the team that builds upon the strong position we hold in the market today.”
