Macphie has announced the departure of its managing director Andy Underwood.

Andy, who is leaving the company at the end of the year, originally joined as commercial director in 2011.

He was the first managing director from outside the Macphie family on his appointment in April 2014.

Chairman Alastair Macphie said: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Andy both personally and publicly for his significant and lasting contribution to the business.

“He has helped strengthen our unique culture, driven year-on-year growth of both sales and profits as well as strategically streamlining our processes, culminating in the successful implementation of our enterprise resource planning system in 2017.

“We wish him every success in the future.”

Taking over from Mr Underwood is Andy Stapley, who is joining the company as chief executive officer (CEO) in October.

Mr Stapley is currently managing director at Kensey Foods in Cornwall.
