BMJ/BMF Young Merchant Achiever Award

The deadline for entering the BMJ/BMF Young Merchant Achiever Award is the end of this month.
The Young Merchant Achiever of the Year Award will be awarded to a merchant manager under 35 who has demonstrated an ability to go above and beyond in their business; bringing in new ideas that address an issue or an opportunity that really delivers results.

The winner will receive a cash prize of £3,000 and a trip to Sweden courtesy of timber supplier SCA Timber.

The award will be judged by a panel of experienced industry figures, representatives from BMJ, the BMF Young Merchants’ current chair, Simon Fleet.

BMJ consultant editor Fiona Russell Horne says: “Tomorrow’s owners and directors are working in the business today. We need to encourage younger members of staff to really engage with, and progress through, the business. This award is designed to recognise and reward talent, initiative and the entrepreneurial spirit that is the backbone of this industry.”

A nomination form for the Young Merchant Achiever Award can be downloaded from here, or from the BMJ website homepage.

Anyone can nominate anyone that fits the criteria – you can even nominate yourself – and the award is free to enter.
