Arbroath man Malcolm Fairweather has been shortlisted for The Platinum Shoe Award in the 2014 Footwear Industry Awards.

He works for Gardiners, who distribute leading global footwear and workwear brands through retail and distribution networks and, with over 2,000 lines, are one of the largest UK footwear and clothing distributors to the trade.

The relationships Gardiners builds with its retailers are key to their achievements. Gardiners is proud of its reputation for excellent customer service and have dedicated field-based area sales managers operating across the UK and Ireland who work in partnership with customers developing sales.

Graeme McKenzies, manager of Mostyn McKenzies, said: “In the 30-something years I have known him, Malcolm has not changed in appearance or in attitude! He is reliable, enthusiastic and, most of all, genuine.”

The Footwear Industry Awards, now in its third year, will take place on the first night of the Moda Footwear Show on February 16.
