UK premium ice cream maker Hill Station has announced the appointment of Iain Macpherson as commercial director.

Macpherson joined Hill Station as marketing manager on 4 November. He was previously sales and marketing director of food manufacturer Askeys and has more than 20 years' experience of sales and marketing in the FMCG (fast-moving consumer goods) sector.

This new position follows the company's 25 October 2004 admission to the AIM (Alternative Investment Market) and its successful fundraising, which the company says will allow it to intensify its marketing programme for the Hill Station brand and to expand its production facilities.

Last week the company announced the appointment of Peter Salter as finance director.
