Karachi: The Federation of Wholesale Distributors honoured Bestway Wholesale managing director Younus Sheikh by awarding him the prestigious Outstanding Achievement award at the Gold Medal Awards ceremony.
The Awards held annually at the HAC Royal Artillery Gardens in the City of London saw James Bielby, director general of the FWD, present Mr. Sheikh with the prize in front of 800 guests from the food and drink and wholesale sectors, bringing the whole room to their feet.
Acknowledging his leadership in developing Bestway Group’s wholesale business, the judges also paid tribute to his honesty, integrity and incredible dedication to the wholesale channel over the past forty years.
Mr. Sheikh was delighted to accept the award and speaking afterwards said “When the citation was being read, I was thinking ‘Wow this person has really devoted his life to wholesale’ then after a few seconds it dawned on me that it was me they were talking about. It really was a fantastic surprise and an incredible honour to receive this recognition. It goes without saying that I could not have done any of this if it wasn’t for the fantastic team I have been lucky enough to have around me over the years. I would like to thank all Bestway and Batleys colleagues, past and present, for all their support, their hard work and dedication, and the many successes we have achieved together. This award is for them as much as it is for me.”
