He will still be involved with the garden retail trade’s major autumn show but will no longer be part of its day-to-day management.
Thurlow told HW: "I have thoroughly enjoyed my time on the show, met and worked with some great people from the industry. We have a great team working on Glee and I am delighted to say the show is in great shape and will be bigger in September."
Sam Mitcham will replace Thurlow as Glee's new event manager.
Mitcham has five years experience as event manager for IFSEC, a trade show for the security industry.
