    Commenting on his move, Richard Bone, said, “Parfetts employee-owned model appealed to me because it allows the business to invest back into better serving its customers and supporting its staff. You can already see the impact of this approach with the fast growth of the depots and Go Local fascia, alongside a happy and long-serving team. I look forward to contributing to the continued success of the company.”
