Board Director of Technolink and Managing Director, Birmingham Wholesale Market
Eddie serves as a director of the Birmingham Wholesale Market Ltd the largest integrated fresh produce wholesale market in the UK.
His involvement with the BWM started some 12 years ago when the tenants at the market, then based in the City centre, appointed his company Technolink UK Ltd to represent them to work with Birmingham City Council to create a new market that would allow BCC to develop the then existing market location. Some 7 years later the new BWM was opened at the Hub in Witton and Eddie is a member of the operating board.
The process of persuading BCC to make this multi-million pound investment was typical of Technolink`s long term engagement with clients across several sectors enabling them to become their trusted advisor.
Technolink is particularly keen to work with clients delivering benefits to the Region and has recently raised £10 million for a client expanding his provision of social housing.
