The recent FWD Awards were a triumph for the Women in Wholesale group, who want to put more brilliant women forward as candidates as part of their mission to ‘progress’ female talent in the British wholesale industry. “After all,” says Elit Rowland, Women in Wholesale founder, “awards always help when you want a promotion.”
On the night Women in Wholesale were thrilled that all the entrants they put forward were shortlisted and two of them won. It was big congratulations to Katie Sillars, Business Development Manager, Bidfood Scotland (Young Wholesaler winner), Joyce Johnston, Customer Service Manager, JW Filshill (Customer Support winner), and Sandra Morris, Key Account Manager, JW Filshill (Depot Team Member finalist.) As a further boost, Women in Wholesale’s supporters JJ Food Service also won two awards, Wholesale Service to Caterers and the Digital Innovation Award.
