Buying group names new chairman

Confex appoints industry renowned Martin Williams as new chairman

Williams has been a leading name in the wholesale sector for more than 35 years, including 15 as Landmark Wholesale’s managing director.

Martin also represented Landmark Wholesale on the Council of the Federation of Wholesale Distributors (FWD) and held the prestigious position as Chairman of the FWD for 3 years up to his planned semi-retirement in December 2016.

Following this, Martin set up his own consultancy business and works in various roles for the FWD, Inspire Field Marketing, Time Wholesale Services and now as Chairman of the Confex Buying Group.

“We are delighted to welcome Martin to the new role of Confex Chairman,” said Nicky White, Confex Managing Director. “Martin will no doubt help to raise the profile of Confex within wholesale while also being an invaluable asset in helping to mould Confex strategy to ensure long-term growth and sustainability for its wholesale members.”

“I’m delighted to be taking up the new position,” said Williams. “I have always admired the work of Nicky and her team in building Confex into such a big buying group, and look forward to helping them drive Confex on to become even bigger and better, enabling their members to thrive and prosper in this dynamic market.”
