THE Suva Retailers Association members elected a new president in what was described as a “hotly contested” position.
Mahesh Syndicate general manager Vinay Kumar was voted in as the new president of the association at the annual general meeting held at the Fiji Club on Thursday.
Mr Kumar said he had been on the SRA board for a few years and decided to contest for the president’s position because he wanted to see some changes happen.
“The nominations for all the board members, treasurer, secretary and vice-presidents were accepted,” he said.
Mr Kumar said the SRA had been a bit dormant on some of the pressing issues faced by the Suva retailers and SRA needed to work with its members to address these issues.
The new board members include Sean Chow of Onyx Ltd and Rakesh Bulsara, who Mr Kumar said would bring new ideas to the table.
