Young Merchants’ Group elect new Chair

The Builders Merchants Federation’s Young Merchants’ Group has elected, Victoria Fiddies, Regional Sales Manager at Catnic – Tata Steel, as Chair and Glenn Paddison, Branch Director at MKM Building Supplies, as Vice Chair.

Victoria, who was previously Vice Chair, takes over from Jamie Pierce, who has just completed his two-year term heading up the group.

Victoria said: “I am very excited to have the opportunity to take on the role of Chair and I am looking forward to working with Glenn. Jamie set a high standard and the Young Merchants Group has grown rapidly over the last couple of years through the hard work that we put in to promote it and make it relevant to the younger generation working in our industry.”

Membership is open to merchants and suppliers aged between 21 and 40. The group meets twice a year in the autumn and spring, and also organises an annual trip overseas. As well as offering excellent networking opportunities, the meetings feature one or more speakers to encourage and inspire the group.
