Parfetts has appointed Jon Griffin as general manager of its new depot in Birmingham.

Griffin (pictured) has over 30 years of experience in the wholesale and convenience sectors. He has held senior roles at Bestway, having managed depots in the Midlands and South Wales.

The 100,000 sq ft Birmingham depot – Parfetts’ eighth site – will open in the New Year, and Griffin will  recruit a team of 100 over the coming months.

Griffin commented: “Parfetts is a great employee-owned company that is bringing something new and exciting to the Midlands market. It’s a fantastic opportunity to build a team that will be laser-focused on delivering the best customer experience. In addition, I find that Parfetts has a passion for wholesale that is unique in the industry at the moment.

“Parfetts is investing in the independent retail business to ensure it has the support and margins to thrive. It’s a true partnership approach that is refreshing, and I’m confident it will drive the growth of the new depot in Birmingham.”

In his new role, Griffin reports to head of operations Jason Barnard and wholesale director Andy Whitworth.
