Stax Trade Centres welcome new Birmingham Branch Manager

Stax Trade Centres has announced that Philip Joyce will be joining the team as Branch Manager designate at their Birmingham location. This follows closely with the news that current Branch Manager, David Scully will be retiring next Spring after 25 years loyal service with the company.

Joyce most recently worked with Poundland as a general manager servicing 370 stores in a warehouse and transport operation where he was responsible for 550 staff.

Before this he spent 25 years working his way through the ranks at Wilkinson Hardware Stores. Starting as a single store manager, progressing to regional manager and finally rising to general manager of distribution servicing 234 stores and 1,600 employees.

The Birmingham Branch are looking forward to making use of Joyce’s skills, in particular his extensive experience in staffing, health and safety and customer experience. 

Stax operations director, Nigel Wright said: “We’re delighted that Phil is joining the team and taking over from David who we will all be sad to see leave.
There are some big shoes to fill in the role, but we’re confident that we’ve found the right man for the job. Phil was a stand out applicant, his CV is exemplary and he’s a man we feel has the right experience and attitude to carry the Birmingham branch forward. We wish David all the best with his impending retirement, he truly deserves it and his 25 year legacy won’t be forgotten.”

Phil is due to start at the Birmingham branch in the New Year where he will begin a three-month handover and induction period and be formally welcomed to the team.
