The sales and marketing director said: "It has been a real privilege to have played a part in Sutton’s long and successful history and to have helped bring so many innovative products and marketing initiatives to the company.
"The team I leave behind is talented, experienced and enthusiastic. Sutton’s new product development plans are already well advanced on a number of exciting projects that will be brought to market over the next one to three years."
Ramsden, who becomes retail sales and marketing director on 1 March, has a strong background in retail and marketing spanning several years and joined Suttons in 2006 as national account controller.
Managing director Cecile Cuzenic said: "I would like to thank David for his commitment over the years; I know that with Chris’s appointment Suttons will continue to grow and produce products of quality and innovation to its customers."
