Booker area manager becomes second chief to return to SWA presidency
BOOKER area manager, Eddie Lynagh, has been named the new senior vice-president of the Scottish Wholesalers’ Association (SWA).
He was unanimously elected to the role at the recent SWA council meeting. The position means he will take over the top job from current president, Asim Sarwar, next summer.
Lynagh will then become the second individual to hold the office for a second term. Graham Benson of Bellevue Cash & Carry was the first.
Lynagh will take over at the Edinburgh-based trade association’s annual conference at Crieff Hydro in June.
“This is an important appointment for the SWA and I am absolutely delighted that Eddie has agreed to accept it,” said Sarwar.
“His experience and enthusiasm will bring fresh ideas and impetus to the SWA and I look forward to working with him in the coming months.”
