Martin Williams, who left Landmark Wholesale two years ago after 15 years as MD and 18 years in other capacities, has joined Confex as chairman – a newly-created position.
Williams represented Landmark on the council of the Federation of Wholesale Distributors and was chairman of the FWD for three years.
On leaving Landmark, he became a consultant, working for the FWD, Inspire Field Marketing and Time Wholesale Services.
Commenting on his new post, he said: “I have always admired the work of Nicky White (Confex MD) and her team in building such a big buying group. I look forward to helping them drive Confex on to become even bigger and better, enabling their members to thrive and prosper in this dynamic market.”
White commented that Williams would help to raise the group’s profile in the wholesale sector.
