Looking for new Co-ops


RAYMOND Gormley, pictured, has been appointed The Co-operative Food’s new regional acquisitions manager for Scotland.

Gormley, who lives in Renfrewshire, has 25 years’ experience in the property sector.
Recently he ran his own property business, finding new stores for clients that included The Co-operative.
In his new role, he will continue to seek out sites for new stores and relocations.
Stuart Hookins, director of portfolio and development, said: “Raymond is familiar with the kind of stores that suit our portfolio, so will be able to hit the ground running.
“His knowledge of the retail property sector in Scotland will be integral to growing the food business in this country.”
