Philip Jenkins, managing director of Sugro UK, will be looking at how to manage choice in his presentation.
He says: “Wholesalers and retailers are consumers as well. How do we fare in the marketplace in providing our ultimate customer with a choice that we and they deserve?”
Jenkins will be drawing on wide experience gained at a senior level with several major wholesale buying groups. After starting his career in distribution with the Co-op, he joined Nisa-Today’s in 1988, becoming wholesale trading director before moving to Spar/Landmark as distribution director in 1995. In 1999 he joined NWCL – Sugro UK – as managing director and became a member of the FWD Council in June 2004.
