Parfetts Cash & Carry has appointed John Elias as grocery buyer to boost its Aintree depot’s buying department.
Elias joins Parfetts after 17 years with Batleys Cash & Carry, where he started out on the shop floor before progressing into various buying positions and senior management roles.
He was assistant general manager at Batleys’ Whiston depot in Liverpool for two years, before moving to its Salford depot as assistant general manager. Elias said he was pleased to be back in Liverpool and added: “Many customers at Aintree remember me from my time at the Whiston depot and therefore half the job of getting to know them and building relationships is already done.”
