The position will see McCarthy head key UK accounts in a dedicated and newly created Lechuza role, as the brand announces new additions to its range of self-watering planters, plus new garden furniture ranges.
McCarthy comes to Leuchuza following seven years at Scheurich, where, since 2008, he worked as the regional sales manager.
He said: "I’m very excited to be on board and have already enjoyed a trip to Germany in my new role to showcase Lechuza’s brand new ranges at Spoga Gafa. There is a lot in the pipeline and I look forward to settling into my new role and driving the company forward."
Jamie Dickinson, head of Marketing for Lechuza and Playmobil said: "We are delighted to welcome Dan on board. He has a wealth of experience which will help to ensure the Lechuza brand continues to develop."
