Sainsbury’s and Asda have welcomed several new faces to their bakery teams in recent weeks.

Asda has an almost entirely new team in place in its bakery department. Director Ian Martin joined in spring, and Laura Sayer has joined as in-store bread buyer, Rosalind Kennerley as in-store cake buyer, Holly Mobley as bought-in bread buyer, and Sue Thompson as buying manager for cake.

Senior in-store bread buyer David Bradley remains in place.

At Sainsbury’s Nick Townend has been replaced by Kim Brown as category manager for bakery and Nic Storey is the new in-store bakery buyer for bread and rolls.
