Ramesh Shingadia

My family and I run 2 Budgens convenience stores, both with Post Offices, located in Horsham, West Sussex.  Both are neighbourhood stores which have undergone full refits.

With a retail career spanning over 35 years, we have been the privileged recipients of several industry awards including Asian Trader of the Year, Londis Store of the Year and Independent Achievers Academy Overall Best Store.

We take pride in ensuring we are at the forefront of excellence in retailing and continually strive to drive up store standards and performance.  We work closely with manufacturers and suppliers on store trials, NPD launches and other innovations.

Whilst retailing takes up a lot of my time, I also sit on several industry panels, and I am an Independent Board Member of the ACS.  I have a real passion for learning and sharing with the best of the industry.
