VOW Wholesale has appointed Steve Smith as UK Operations Director.
Steve formerly worked for EVO Group and has a record of managing complex operations. Of merit is his ability to manage multi-site warehouses and large-scale distribution, integrating automated and manual processes to optimise the customer experience. Steve also formerly worked as National General Manager for JB Global, overseeing 300+ employees across multiple sites, handling more than 11,000 individual products with a laser focus on warehouse efficiency and customer experience.
Adrian Butler, VOW Wholesale Managing Director said, “I’m delighted that Steve is joining the business. He has a real talent for seeing the finer details and the bigger picture. That only comes from years of experience at the very highest level.
“Steve has great relationships with some of the UK dealers already and really appreciates their needs. As a result of this, he has a unique perspective of the challenges that we face together as a sector. More importantly, he sees the many opportunities before us.”
Steve Smith added, “I am looking forward to joining Adrian and the team at VOW Wholesale as UK Operations Director. I will be looking to build on the work that Martin Weedall has achieved during his time in the role and work with resellers, suppliers, and our transport team to achieve the levels of service and standards they expect.”
Adrian added, “I’d like to take the opportunity to also thank Martin for all his support over many years within VOW and wish him the very best in his new role within the EVO Group.”
