Green-tech announces two winners

Company: Green-tech

Green-tech is celebrating after finding out that two of their team have been named as winners in the Pro Landscaper ‘30 under 30’ - The Next Generation Initiative.

25-year-old Key Account Manager Georgia Gilbert and 27-year-old Key Account Manager Arron Grange have both been selected as rising stars in the recent winners list, which seeks to unearth the most impressive young people within the arboriculture, garden design, horticultural and landscaping sectors.

30 Under 30: The Next Generation is an initiative run by Pro Landscaper to help bridge the skills gap and to help attract young people to the industry.

In its eighth year, ProLandscaper has celebrated 240 people aged 30 or under who are achieving extraordinary things.

Georgia started at Green-tech three years ago after graduating with a BSc (Hons) degree in Horticulture. She joined as a specification administrator but her passion and enthusiasm for wildflowers was quickly noted, and she was promoted into the John Chambers Wildflower team. She has since become one the youngest members of Green-tech to become a key account manager for the John Chambers team. Georgia is also an ambassador for BALI GoLandscape and now visits schools and colleges to inspire the next generation into the industry.

Arron started at Green-tech six years ago as a sales advisor. His commitment and hard work paid off and two years later he was promoted to technical sales advisor. Arron is now one of five key account managers across the business and has recently been involved in working to expand the business into the Irish landscape market.

Commenting on her success Georgia said, “I am absolutely thrilled to be chosen as one of only 30 young people in the industry. I am genuinely really proud. I’m doing a job that is my passion and I love it. I’m grateful for the support and opportunities I’ve been offered.”

Arron adds, “Like Georgia I am really pleased.  It’s an elite club we are joining so I feel the hard work is paying off and it’s an honour to be named as a 30 under 30. Green-tech provides lots of opportunities and does invest in its younger staff, and for that I’m grateful.”

Green-tech’s Managing Director Kris Nellist is delighted for his two team members and comments, “Georgia and Arron are the sixth and seventh people from Green-tech to have achieved this high accolade since the 30 under 30: The Next Generation was first launched in 2014.  They are both remarkable young people with bright futures ahead of them and I am delighted and proud that they have been officially recognised within the industry.”

The official presentation will be held a FutureScape 2022 on Tuesday 15th November at 5pm.
