Alison Harlow

Category Procurement Director , h&b Buying Group

Alison Harlow has worked in a procurement function for almost 40 years, in retail, merchant and manufacturing which gives her a broad knowledge of how the complete supply chain really works. Most of her career has been based around heavy building materials and landscaping.

Outside of work, she can be found walking in the Peak District, where she lives, with two cockapoos, who are probably the most spoilt dogs in the world. She also has a passion for fast cars.

“The builders' merchant industry has a great deal to offer our construction sector, and it is important to recognise this stoic industry through awards for their hard work, professionalism and entrepreneurial approach to business. That's why the Builders' Merchants Awards are so important.”
