Dawood Pervez to replace Martin Race as Bestway MD

Martin Race, managing director of Bestway Wholesale, is stepping down from this role, which he has filled for two years, and will be leaving the business on 30 November.

The reason given is ‘the unenviable burden’ of being away from his family for five years to work from the C&C/wholesaler’s London head office.

Race (left), who has spent more than 30 years in the trade, was trading director of Batleys before that company was taken over by Bestway in 2005.

His replacement as Bestway MD – from 1 December – will be Dawood Pervez, son of chairman Sir Anwar Pervez OBE.

A qualified solicitor, Dawood Pervez (right) joined the company in 2002. Since then, he has headed various functions, including legal, HR, property and marketing. He has also played a key role in acquisitions, digital activity, export business and trading.
