Top 100 Influencers
The BMF and Builders’ Merchants News have partnered to bring the merchant industry together to recognise the top 100 most influential people across the UK builders’ merchants sector.
An influencer is someone who has the power to affect the decisions of others because of their authority, knowledge, position, or relationship with their audience.
BMF Regional Managers will draw up a list of the most influential merchants within their areas to be considered. They do not have to be BMF members, or directors, or managers; the key ingredient is to be ‘influential’.
To make the Top 100 Merchant Influencer list, merchants must reach key criteria in specific categories:
Charity & community work
Commitment to the industry as a whole.
An individual who works for a builders’ merchant and is involved with buying groups and trade associations, who attend events and focus on great customer interaction will be considered. Someone who is active on social media, or has a presence within their community through fundraising, performing charitable work could also make the Top 100. If they are also committed to training and promoting the next generation of apprentices via the apprenticeship scheme, and they themselves are actively continuing to learn then they too could be in the running.
If you think that this could be you, or someone you work with, then please get in touch with your local BMF Regional Manager, or contact a member of the BMN team.
The Top 100 Merchant Influencers will be featured in a special commemorative brochure and will be invited to an exclusive Gala Dinner on 19 May 2022 at the Belfry, Sutton Coldfield, for an evening of celebration and networking.
Siniat, part of Etex Building Performance Group, is the headline sponsor for this unique event.
