Dee Bee, the Grimsby-based independent wholesaler and a member of the Today’s Group, has appointed Tab Maqsood to their retail sales development team.
Tab has extensive experience in the UK retail sector, including 10 years with the National Federation of Retail Newsagents and, more recently, a spell with Palmer & Harvey as a retail development manager.
He joins Dee Bee at a time of further expansion for the company, which is one of the UK’s best known wholesaler brands. It recently announced the opening of a third convenience store in Liverpool under the Today’s symbol facia brand and continues to seek further opportunities to expand in the North.
My role will be to help to take the Dee Bee business to even higher levels by keeping existing customers happy and getting the most profit potential out of our stores in what is a very competitive market.
Nick Ramsden, Dee Bee group managing director, said the company was constantly on the look-out to recruit the best individuals in the wholesale sector.
We are currently moving into a new phase in the company’s development and we need to attract people such as Tab who can bring the very best in retail and business development skills.
Tab is married with two children and enjoys football, golf and spending quality time with his family.
Dee Bee operates a 60,000 sq. ft. warehouse in Adam Smith Street, Grimsby, where it stocks a wide range of products to fulfil the requirements of both convenience stores and the on-trade.
