New Landmark managing director John Mills has laid out his ambitions for the buying group.
Addressing Landmark’s annual conference in Dallas, Texas, in the USA, Mills encouraged delegates to consider whether it was a time of “evolution or revolution” for the sector, amid a series of challenges facing wholesale businesses.
He said: “My aim is that Landmark will be renowned in the industry for our openness and integrity, the excellent service we provide, the competitiveness of our offer, and how easily and effectively we work with member and suppliers.”
Mills explained that whilst there were many challenges facing the sector, by working “creatively, efficiently and collaboratively”, it would be possible to navigate the company in order to be a stronger and better organisation, rather than just a “bigger one”.
During the conference, attendees also heard from industry figures such as Dave Scalera, senior vice president of foodservice and distributor sales at Frito-Lay North America, and James Bielby, chief executive at the Federation of Wholesale Distributors.
