Jill Wheeler has been appointed as the new Family Fund Business Services’ (FFBS) Managing Director.
Jill, who has been with the company for three years as Head of Business Development has already helped to establish relationships with an increasing number of partner organisations and UK suppliers, ensuring the scope and range of available products and services are aligned with their customer’s needs and requirements. Jill also brings with her a breadth of experience across the private, public and not for profit sectors including roles within the NHS, Department for Work and Pensions and the Northern Recruitment Group.
Jill says: ‘‘It is an exciting time for Family Fund Business Services, as we continue to grow and develop our fulfillment service in line with increasing customer demand.
“I am delighted at the prospect of leading FFBS and working with the team to enhance and extend our procurement solution, to support even more customers across the housing, charity and local government sectors, and to deliver increased income for our parent charity, Family Fund.’
Cheryl Ward, Family Fund’s Group Chief Executive and Board member of FFBS says: “We are pleased to welcome Jill Wheeler to the role. Jill has already been pivotal to FFBS’ success and we wish her the best of luck as she and the team continue to expand the fulfilment service and support to Family Fund.”
FFBS was established to create value for organisations by providing a more efficient administration process and access to goods and services at a reduced cost through our collective buying power. By 2020 our vision is to gift £1 million every year to Family Fund, helping to extend the charity’s reach to support more families raising disabled or seriously ill children.
