Parfetts Cash amp; Carry has appointed Bryan Allen as non-food buyer for its Somercotes depot in Derbyshire.
Allen is responsible for the non-food category which encompasses household goods, petfoods, paper and medicines.
He has over 30 years within the food and drink industry, including five years working in Germany. Most recently he held trading roles at Hyperama and T amp;A Symonds.
Allen said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to work for a well respected wholesaler in the industry alongside a fantastic team at Somercotes. It is a completely different challenge to working in a delivered wholesaler were customers are rarely seen. It is incredibly satisfying to be able to build that rapport on a daily basis and respond in an instant and face-to-face manner to customers’ needs.
“I’m looking forward to building on these relationships and also working closely with suppliers and the rest of the Parfetts team.”
