The NFRN is to bring its commercial offering to members, which includes drop shipment service NFRN Direct, in-house following a “root and branch review of services”. 

The creation of the new department aims to bring benefits to the organisation’s 15,000 members and marks the return of former head of marketing Graeme Collins to the NFRN, to head up the department. 

National president Linda Sood said: “Through the creation of this new department we aim to improve and increase the range of services and deals that NFRN members currently enjoy, as well as finding new and relevant profit opportunities.” 

Meanwhile, NFRN Commercial, the vehicle created to increase the benefits for members from commercial activity, is in the process of being placed into liquidation.
