Tabitha Hunter-Smale leaves Sugro to join Confex

Tabitha Hunter-Smale (pictured), head of business development at Sugro, is joining Confex in the new role of projects development manager.

Tom Gittins, managing director of Confex, commented: ‘We are excited to be strengthening the head office team with the addition of Tabitha, in line with our continued group growth.

“Our member-led board felt it was the right time to expand our resource, creating the new role of projects development manager. Confex has implemented some great initiatives in the last two years such as the launch of the CORE own-label, Food To Go Club and the Data Insight programme, which now require additional resource as they develop across the group.

“Tabitha has great experience within wholesale and we look forward to welcoming her to the team.”

Hunter-Smale, who has spent the last three-and-a-half years at Sugro, added: “I am thrilled to be joining such an experienced head office team, and hope that my role will offer Confex additional support, whilst I know I will enjoy working closely with Confex members and suppliers. Celebrating their 50th year, Confex is a forward-thinking, inclusive business which I’m extremely excited to be part of.”
