JFS day three: Hello and goodbye
The January Furniture Show marked a changing of the guard at the BFM.
The show was the first as BFM md for former Ercol md Nick Garratt, and the final one as BFM md for Jackie Bazeley.
After eight years of strong leadership and growing the BFM to what it is today, Bazeley said she was sad to say farewell to all those that she has met along the way.
‘The show is bittersweet. It is my last show with BFM so is the perfect opportunity for saying goodbyes to those I have met over the years. Although I am looking forward to relaxing in retirement, I will be sad to step away from the industry,’ said Bazeley.
She is due to retire in May, after overseeing March’s London Fabric Show and various other projects.
