This September, the BMF/BMJ Young Merchant of the Year awards were announced. Awarded to a merchant manager under 35 who has demonstrated the ability to go above and beyond in their business; bringing in new ideas that address an issue or an opportunity that really delivers results.
We were really proud that MKM’s very own Darren (Billy) Smith from our Malton branch was shortlisted for the award for his hard work and commitment at the branch and within the MKM network.
Not only was Billy shortlisted, he won the Bronze award which is the first time in the awards history that this has been presented.
Although the award went to Billy for his achievements, he added that;
“Personally I see the award as a reflection of the fantastic team we have at Malton branch and also the great support we receive from everyone at central support.
I was grateful for the nomination and surprised to be shortlisted. But without the hard work and dedication of everyone in branch I wouldn’t have an application to put forward, so well done Malton and thanks to head office for their continued support.”
Congratulations to Billy and everyone at the Malton branch!
