The Builders Merchants Federation and Builders’ Merchants News have partnered to bring the merchant industry together to recognise the top 100 most influential people across the UK builders’ merchants sector.
The Top 100 Merchant Influencers will be featured in a special commemorative brochure and will be invited to an exclusive Gala Dinner on 19 May 2022 for an evening of celebration and networking. Interested suppliers are invited to get involved and should contact Lucyanne Matthews (+44 (0) 7917 463383), or BMF Events Manager, June Upton (+44 (0) 2476 854980) for further details.
Our Marketing to Builders Merchants feature includes contact details of the UK’s principal buying groups. The feature also provides access to our downloadable database of Named Buyers at UK Builders Merchants. For non-subscribers this database is available via our Shop.
John Newcomb, Chief Executive of the BMF, said, “The merchant community is blessed with people whose activities and commitment make a positive difference to others. They may promote initiatives within their own business. They could support individuals or organisations within their local area or even nationally. Or they may work unselfishly for the benefit of the wider building materials industry. What they have in common is the affirmative influence they have on those around them. Some will be widely known, others may fly under the radar. We aim to shine a spotlight on the work all are doing to celebrate and salute their achievements.”
BMN’s Associate Publisher, Lucyanne Matthews, added, “The BMN team is proud to partner and launch this new event with the BMF. We always feel that the greatest rewards come when we work together collaboratively to recognise the talent and passion that so many merchants have for the sector they are part of. From the energy and enthusiasm they throw at their local and national charitable work, to the evidence that we are seeing with the new Construction Leadership Council’s CO2nstruct Zero Business Champions, merchants are an influential part of their communities.”
