The latter has over ten years experience with a leading non-food retailer and will be heading up Netto's non-food buying team with a focus on driving sales and building on already strong relationships with key suppliers in both the Far East and the UK.
Mr Ingle said: " I'm looking to introduce new and exciting product lines alongside some of our hugely popular own label ranges such as 'ToolTec' (DIY), 'Home' (Housewares) and 'Scribe' (Stationery), as well as extending the core offer on pet care and everyday household essentials."
