Nisa role for Whittalls boss Chatha

09 February, 2007

Nisa-Today's

new deputy chairman is

Whittalls Wines boss Raj Chatha.

His appointment is one of a raft at senior level which also sees Booths supermarkets executive chairman Edwin Booth

become

the group's chairman, replacing Dudley Ramsden.

The deputy chairman's position

ha d been vacant since last October.

Neil Turton, who has worked for Nisa-Today's for 16 years, most recently as chief operating officer, becomes chief executive in a newly-created role.

The appointments are said to mark Nisa-Today's commitment to reshaping its senior leadership

in the wake of failed merger negotiations with Costcutter .

"The company hopes

this new structure with greater member ­involvement reflecting the diversity of the group

will provide a platform for future growth," a spokesman said.

Booth, who has been Nisa-Today's deputy chairman for six years, said: "After the difficulties

Nisa-Today's experienced last year, I am encouraged that the board displays a hunger to do business and drive value for the benefit of both retail and wholesale members."

Chatha has been a member of Nisa-Today's since 1987 and has sat on the board for three years.

Turton said: "My plan is to work with the board and staff to develop Nisa-Today's as an organisation to be proud of, embedding best corporate governance practices and combining these with Nisa-Today's trading acumen."
