Have you read November’s Wholesale News?

Interviews galore as industry movers open up about their new roles

There’s no chance of the wholesale sector settling down, is there? Over the past few months, we’ve seen a raft of changes, with consolidations, mergers and retirements dominating the headlines.

That change has triggered a number of senior moves within the wholesale’s upper echelons, so this month we decided to turn our focus to meeting some of the key players starting in their new roles.

In this month’s issue, you can find interviews with Bestway’s Managing Director-in-waiting Dawood Pervez and a piece with the new management team at Sugro, which is being headed up by former Nisa CEO Neil Turton.
