NFT chief exec shortlisted for BVCA award

Alfreton, Derbyshire, UK: NFT’s chief executive, David Frankish has been shortlisted for the national finals of the British Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (BVCA) Management Team Awards.

David is a well-deserved contender for CEO of the year, in recognition of NFT’s success since he led a management buyout with Phoenix Partners in 2006. The award is for CEOs who have enjoyed a successful and inspiring career at the helm of one or many private equity and venture capital-backed companies in the UK, says a company spokeperson.

“Since 2006, David has transformed NFT from an in-house distribution arm of its previous parent company Northern Foods, into the UK’s market leader in chilled food and drink distribution.  During this period NFT has enjoyed 8% per annum compound sales growth and confidently predicts a similar increase for FY 2013,” she says.

The BVCA is the industry body and public policy advocate for the private equity and venture capital industry in the UK. The awards ceremony will take place on 5 July at the Lancaster Hotel, London.

David won the CEO of the Year’award for the Midlands region in April 2012 beating stiff competition and automatically qualified as one of six UK regional winners for the national finals.
