Parfetts Cash and Carry’s Somercotes depot has seen Colin Collins move roles to become the new operations manager.
This is an internal transition for Collins, moving from his previous role as retail development manager at Somercotes.
The new role involves liaising with customers, staff and the buying team to ensure the smooth running of the depot across the warehouse, checkouts and goods-in. He will be an intermediary between all parties using the depot on a daily basis.
Collins has worked at Parfetts for over four years, joining as a retail development manager. Before that he was self employed.
He said: “It is a new and interesting career change for me and while it is a completely different challenge, there is a definite cross-over in skills and experience with my main responsibility being customer-focused. My previous role as retail development manager has given me the insight into what customers want when they visit the depot, which helps me ensure that the depot is run in exactly the right way to help meet their needs. It also helps that I know many of the customers well and therefore am a familiar and friendly face in the depot should they need assistance.”
