Steve Pitcher joined Homebase / Bunnings last week to head up the horticulture team.
He was head of seasonal at B&Q until a year ago. Prior to that he was purchasing director at Wyevale under Nicholas Marshall, leaving in November 2013 soon after Kevin Bradshaw took over as CEO.
Steve attended yesterday’s HTA National Plant Show with a team from Homebase Bunnings. He said he was very excited to be working with a group with 250 outlets and that the three Bunnings concept stores were working very well.
