Hyperama was once again named member of the year at Landmark Wholesale’s annual awards dinner, held recently in Glasgow.
Parfetts collected the top own-brand member trophy and the leading cash & carry depot prize for its Sheffield branch. Blakemore Wholesale’s Gateshead depot picked up the top delivered award.
Among the suppliers, JTI was named business partner of the year, while Coca-Cola European Partners was handed the business development partner award. Mondelez International was adjudged the most improved partner.
At the awards evening, outgoing managing director Martin Williams received a standing ovation. It was his last Landmark event after 33 years with the organisation.
In his his farewell speech, Williams commented: “The Landmark awards evening is a real highlight in the calendar. It was wonderful to celebrate the group’s successes with so many of our members, suppliers and staff. I thank everyone for their warm wishes for the future.”
