James Clark to leave the HTA

HTA has announced that its director of policy and communications, James Clark, has decided to leave after almost three years. 

HTA chairman, James Barnes, said, “I want to thank James for all his hard work and commitment to the HTA and its members.

“He has achieved a huge amount – leading the successful campaign to reopen garden centres as the first sector out of the Covid lockdown in May, establishing the HTA’s first ever sustainability function and launching the Association’s new magazine, Inside Horticulture – delivering improved member value.”

James Clark said, “I’m obviously sad to leave the HTA but it is the right time to do so. I’m excited about new opportunities.

“I’m really pleased to have worked with such a great, award-winning policy and communications team.  Together we achieved key policy change, improved the Industry’s media profile and delivered insightful member communications.”

James will help with the transition until 15 April 2022. The HTA will commence the recruitment of a successor in due course.
