Parfetts’ former joint MD Greg Suszczenia passes away

Parfetts’ former joint managing director Greg Suszczenia has died.

After finding out that he had terminal brain cancer a year ago, he retired from Parfetts to spend time with his family.

In the last few weeks of his life, Suszczenia (pictured) launched a campaign to raise £5,000 for The Brain Tumour Charity – his target was exceeded several times over as friends and colleagues gave their support to the charity and Suszczenia himself. As Cash & Carry Management went to press, the amount raised was more than £33,000:  

Guy Swindell, joint managing director of Parfetts, said: “Greg was a dedicated colleague who will be remembered fondly by everyone at Parfetts. He led Parfetts through a period of sustained expansion and had a passion for the industry that was clear to everyone he met.

“He retired last year from the industry after a career that spanned buyer, depot manager, trading director and joint managing director at Parfetts. Greg helped oversee the successful transition from a family-owned to an employee-owned business and also served on the Unitas board. He was a respected voice in the wholesale sector. We share our condolences with his wife Bev and two sons Michael and Kristian.”
