This is a new expansive board-level appointment with end-to-end responsibilities from procurement to (profitable!) sales.

The business has grown successfully over the last 10 years with turnover increasing from £31m in 2013 to nearing £90m today. Under the next generation of family leadership of Ben & Rachel Davies, with father Mark Davies having stepped up to Chairman, they are secure, stable, well-financed and looking forward to further growth.

They are the number 1 independent merchant in South Wales. They have a spacious, easily accessible and modern head office in Ammanford.

This important role has a broad remit covering the below across the entire Group of brands:

  • Procurement – including involvement with the buying group they are members of
  • Price Book
  • Sales
  • Being a key member of the board helping form and deliver a successful strategy

Experience operating in a similar role within a similar environment is naturally advantageous.  However, we are also open to considering applications from candidates in related sectors where the business model is similar and skills and experience are readily transferable.  The MDs are keen to encourage diversity of thought and experience and indeed diversity in every sense.  Energy and pace are also important, along with an ability to get out and get things done – an ivory tower approach won’t work here.

Cultural fit is key.  Candidates need to be able to project gravitas and credibility both internally and externally, earning the trust and respect of their teams, their peers, senior-level contacts within suppliers and customers, and important industry contacts.

If you have the breadth and depth of experience, the capacity to operate as part of the board and most importantly the personality and behavioural characteristics to fit within this fantastic business, please get in touch.  Email your CV to Wilson Brook MD Neil Holloway via neil@wilsonbrook.com or call Neil on 07796 542641
