Neil Turton to leave Sugro


Neil Turton has announced he will leave Sugro in May after serving as MD of the confectionery and snacks buying group for 18 months.
When Turton joined Sugro in September 2018 the group had been without an MD for six months as Philip Jenkins had left after 17 years in the job.
“The board of Sugro has accepted the resignation of MD Neil Turton,” a company statement said. “Neil will be working his three months’ notice and will leave on 1 May. Sugro wishes to thank Neil for his work as MD.”
Turton has said he is leaving on friendly terms and that he will spend time reflecting on his next steps.
He claims to be leaving Sugro in a stable position with a stable senior management team. The group saw turnover increase 7% last year.
Turton was previously COO of Co-operatives UK for 18 months and had worked at Him International and My Local. He was at Nisa for 23 years, seven of which were as CEO.
