“Both Mark and Graham are already doing fantastic jobs in their respective areas, and we are now looking forward to developing GARDENA sales in the South West region.

“Stuart brings with him a solid knowledge of his sales area and a strong merchandising back ground.”

Stuart shares his thoughts on joining the GARDENA team. “Working with such an established company as Husqvarna Group is a fantastic opportunity. GARDENA is such a dynamic brand with such a wide range of fantastic products.

“As I learn more about GARDENA, in particular how much it values quality and innovation, I can’t wait to get on the road and share this with customers both old and new. I’m looking forward to building up our customer base in the South West and building on trusted relationships I have developed throughout my time in the Garden Centre industry.”
