Dean Purcell

 

I started in the business at the age of 16 working at Gilgrove Covent Garden under Bill Gilman. After 25 years myself and Bill joined Premier Fruits. Bill then retired two years later and I took over managing the department and with the team have built the business to an £8m turnover with the aim to grow the business further.

Dean Graham

I started work for a catering business back in 2000 as a warehouseman and learned to make the tea and sweep up as part as my induction. Soon I got a job loading where I first met Dean Purcell and soon worked my way up to a Junior Salesman. Then an opportunity came up to work for Premier Fruits working on Salads with Barry Grant. I transferred to Exotics and joined up again with Dean Purcell  and with the rest of the team have grown the business to £8m and

see the potential for further growth.

Ray Hook

I am the third generation of my family to work in Covent Garden  and started out working for Roger Garber many moons ago. Over the years I have sold many products and specialised in French and Italian produce which has given me a wide knowledge. I joined the Exotic team in 2014 and not looked back since.

Ronnie Simpson

I started my Premier Fruits career as a warehouseman in 2009 covering  all departments which helped me gain a brief knowledge of the products.

My hard work was soon recognised and I was offered the position of Junior Salesman specialising in Exotics from around the world which I took the opportunity gladly. Since then I have been a part of the team which has grown the Exotic business and I have developed my skills in the process.

I enjoy every day and look forward to bright future with Premier Fruits
