Conviviality hires female director

The owner of Bargain Booze has added a second female executive to its board after announcing yesterday that it has appointed Julie Wirth as chief financial officer. The former finance boss of Musgrave Retail Partners, which operates the Budgens and Londis brands, will join Conviviality Retail’s board in November, replacing Peter Hodgson. The low-cost off licence chain, which is led by chief executive Diana Hunter, made its successful debut on the Alternative Investment Market last week.
