CHARLES Shaw, who co-founded the 5pm.co.uk online booking site after a career in the whisky industry, has been appointed non-executive chairman of Scottish macaroon maker Lees Foods.

A former chief executive of Invergordon Distillers, Mr Shaw has joined the board of Lees Foods four months after the company delisted from the AIM market after a £5.6 million management buyout, led by chief executive Clive Miquel.

"Charles has a wealth of experience in many sectors that will help us shape the strategic focus of our businesses," said Mr Miquel.
