John Newcomb

Chief Executive Officer, Builders' Merchants Federation

John has led the BMF, the trade association for the building materials supply chain, since 2012. During his tenure he has overseen the introduction of initiatives that have broadened its relevance and appeal and the BMF has grown in member numbers and influence to become the voice of the merchant industry. John is the current President of UFEMAT, the European trade body for the merchant industry, and a Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Builders Merchants.

“As the industry's annual showcase and celebration of organisations that are excelling in so many different ways, there is a natural synergy between these Awards and the BMF's mission to help members build excellence across their business.”
