Ade Abass has left his position as MD of British Bakels, with a permanent replacement to be announced by the firm in due course.

Abass joined the firm in January 2002, working primarily in the finance division, before being promoted to general manager in January 2009, following the departure of former MD Ian Dobbie to Délifrance.

A spokesperson for British Bakels confirmed that Abass had left the company and that former MD Paul Morrow would take over the helm on an interim basis, until a replacement was announced.

In January 2008, Morrow was promoted from MD of British Bakels, to the three-strong executive committee that runs the Bakels group worldwide.
