At our 2023 Annual Conference in Harrogate on June 12 and 13, our new senior officials were voted in.

Muntazir Dipoti was elected as National President, with Shahid Razzaq voted in as vice president and Hetal Patel becoming deputy vice president.

All three said they were honoured to be elected to these positions.

In his acceptance speech, Muntazir, better known as Monty, said:
“Being elected as the Fed’s leader is the greatest honour that can be bestowed upon a member and I am humbled that you have put your faith in me.

I can assure you that in all my dealings I will always put members first and will stay loyal to my principles of being honest, open and transparent.”

After leading the Fed for 12 months since the 2022 Annual Conference as National President, Jason Birks becomes immediate past president.

Our National President has a demanding schedule.  As well as chairing meetings of the national executive committee (NEC) and national council, he attends key industry events and meetings with our key business partners, makes official visits to all Fed districts and will provide comments and statements to the media as he champions the cause of independent retailers.
