Peter Birks joined Tuffnells on 1 October to lead as CEO.

Peter joined Tuffnells earlier this month as Chief Executive Officer and will lead on the company’s new operations and network strategy.

The appointment was made following a re-structure announcement by Tuffnells’ parent company Connect Group and signals the start of a new chapter for the irregular consignment specialist.

Peter’s wealth of experience spans both distribution and retail, having held senior executive positions at successful companies such as Premier Farnell, Staples and 3M. His knowledge in the logistics industry will be invaluable to driving Tuffnells forward into FY19 with an invigorated customer-centric approach.

The announcement comes after a series of investments into Tuffnells, including the expansion of its management and leadership teams. Allan Blakeley joined the company as Operations Director in September and will work with Peter and the wider operations team to strengthen the focus of the business.
