Ex-Booker Richard Fleming joins Parfetts as head of operations (west)

Parfetts has appointed Richard Fleming as head of operations (west).

He will be responsible for developing the delivered service for the Stockport, Aintree and Anfield depots and ensuring excellence in the cash & carry operations.

Fleming, who joins the business from Booker where he was an area manager, will report to wholesale director Andy Whitworth.

Whitworth commented: “Richard brings a wealth of experience to this new role. He joins the business at an exciting time as the Go Local and The Local brands expand throughout the North West. Our delivered offer, which allows retailers to order up until midday for next-day delivery, is proving hugely popular with new and existing customers.”

Fleming added: “Thanks to its employee-ownership model, Parfetts has a unique culture and focus on the customer. I’m looking forward to working with the fantastic teams across the depots and meeting customers across the region. There is lots to shout about at Parfetts with fresh investment in our digital channels and logistics operations to ensure retailers receive a best-in-class service.”
