Parfetts recruits Jon Griffin as GM for new depot

Parfetts has appointed Jon Griffin as the general manager for its new depot in Birmingham, its eighth site

With more than 30 years’ experience in the wholesale and convenience sectors, Griffin has held senior roles at Bestway managing depots in the Midlands and South Wales.

Jon will recruit a team of 100 over the coming months and will report to Parfetts head of operations Jason Barnard and wholesale director Andy Whitworth.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity to build a team that will be laser-focused on delivering the best customer experience,” said Griffin.

“Parfetts are investing in the independent retail business to ensure they have 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.”

The 100,000-square-foot Birmingham depot will launch in the new year.
