Suttons current managing director, Cecile Cuzenic, is to become deputy chief executive officer for Limagrain Field Seeds Division and will move to the headquarters in Clermont Ferrand, France. She will be leaving Suttons at the end of January.
One of her lasting legacies has been to initiate the investment for the new Suttons Trial Grounds.
Suttons is due to move from trial grounds at Fermoys Garden Centre near Newton Abbot to a site closer to its Paignton base this year.
Bernard Bejar will take up the position in Paignton on 1 February 2013. He has worked for Suttons' parent company Limagrain group for seven and a half years in various managerial positions.
In other moves announced this week, William Sinclair Horticulture has recruited Nick Poole as an additional national account manager. He has national account experience gained from his previous roles in 3M UK and Sanyo Europe.
