Mark Burrowes Returns at Danks
The move has come as a result of Danks’ General Manager and hardware industry stalwart, Graeme Danks, announcing his retirement. Danks will continue to work within the home improvement business at Woolworths in a part-time capacity as he transitions into retirement.
Con Dekazos will become General Manager – Wholesale, reporting to Mark Burrowes and with responsibility for the day to day wholesale operations, buying, marketing, finance, supply chain and franchisee operations.
Commenting on the top end restructure, Don Stallings praised Danks’ contribution to the hardware industry over 40 years. “With more than 150 years of history, the Danks’ family has left an amazing legacy to this industry and we look forward to continuing their hard work on behalf of all our wholesale customers. Mark’s experience makes him a very worthy successor to Graeme and the Danks customers can be reassured that they will be in excellent hands.”
