Parfetts Cash & Carry has promoted Andy Whitworth to the new role of head of customer development.

Whitworth will be responsible for developing Parfetts’ Go Local Retail Club for its 800 members and expanding its offer to Parfetts’ 13,000 customers.

“Managing a retail club of more than 800 independents and channelling these into a single format that all agree on will be challenging but I believe we have the right proposition in place,” he said. “We have a lot of exciting plans to unveil over the next few months.”

Whitworth joined Parfetts 14 years ago and was previously general manager of its Halifax depot.
