Textiles business Coats has named David Gosnell as non-executive director.
Gosnell, who has over 30 years’ experience in supply chain and procurement strategy and execution, retired from consumer goods company Diageo in December 2014, where he was most recently president of global supply chain and procurement.
Coats chairman Mike Clasper said: “David is an excellent addition to the Coats board. He brings extensive supply and procurement knowledge acquired during his time with world class global manufacturing companies. This will bring invaluable additional industry expertise and perspective to our board.”
