New Managing Director For Company Behind Castle Maclellan

Kavli UK, part of Kavli Group and the charitable foundation behind Kirkcudbright’s Castle MacLellan, has announced Mark Butel as its new Managing Director.

Having previously been with Kavli UK for over 15 years, including nine years in a role as Head of Sales, Mark brings a wealth of sector experience to the role.

Mark’s appointment looks set to propel the company from strength to strength over the coming years, overseeing the brand’s continued CSR efforts in the Dumfries and Galloway region.

In his statement, Mark Butel expressed his excitement: “It is an honour to lead Kavli UK during this historic milestone. Our commitment to excellence, coupled with our dedication to continued growth, being socially responsible and working together as a team, will guide us as we continue to provide high-quality products to our consumers.”

As part of the Kavli Trust, Castle MacLellan donates all profits to good causes. In December Castle MacLellan donated £37,000 to three regional charities. This significant contribution underscores Castle MacLellan’s continued commitment to supporting its local community.

Butel continued: “Castle MacLellan, one of Kavli’s most iconic brands, holds a special place in the hearts of consumers across the country, particularly in the Dumfries and Galloway region. My aim is to build upon this esteemed legacy by fostering innovation and sustained growth in the food sector, ensuring we continue to uphold our commitment to supporting local employment for years to come.”
Gareth Watson, Marketing Manager at Castle MacLellan, echoes this sentiment: “Mark’s unwavering commitment to community engagement aligns seamlessly with our brand values and trajectory, and we look forward to supporting more families across the region under Mark’s leadership, while continuing to create award-winning food products here in Kirkcudbright.”

The Kirkcudbright brand is currently stocked across Asda, Tesco and Co-op stores across the UK.
