Dave Farrow, Area Director – Management Trainee Scheme

Rsz _1dave (1)

I joined the industry part time when I was at college, and had never  really considered a career in Builders Merchanting.  I quickly found  that the industry was heavily focused on people and building  relationships with customers and colleagues and this was really  rewarding. 

 I chose not to go to university and joined a Management Trainee  programme, working in every area of builders merchanting. From  there I progressed into internal sales, external sales, sales  management, branch management and then regional projects.

 I am now an Area Director and I recently completed my Post Graduate Diploma with  Jewson. I enjoy the industry now even more than I did when I  joined 17 years ago.  Builders Merchanting is a place where you  really can grow your career and your own career path if you have  the desire, ambition and attitude to do it!
