Managing director

The managing director body is the link between the directors board and the works commissions, and it’s in charge of all the administrations and services of the federation.

Our federation was born with a forwards looking mentality. That’s why, we are open-minded about any idea that can help us to improve the conditions of our sector, and since there is no doubt that unity it’s a very important way to defend our common interests, we believe that all the professionals of the sector should have a place in our alliance.

That’s why; we are open minded to any possible contract with any kind of association, either provincial unions already united, or self retailers that don’t belong to any association yet. Nowadays, we are developing a plan in collaboration with the CEC (Spanish confederation of commerce) to reach all the Spanish communities.
