RHS shows personnel shake-up continues with appointment of two new managers

The RHS has shaken up its events team, with the appointment of two new show managers.

Saul Walker is the new show manager for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. In 2009 he was accepted as a student on the Kew Diploma in Botanical Horticulture at Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, where, following his three year training course, he was employed as a Woodland Garden Botanical Horticulturist.

Walker joined the RHS from Kew in April 2013, as deputy show manager for RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show.

Dave Green is new show manager at RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show. He joined the RHS as a trainee on the RHS Diploma Course at RHS Garden Wisley, where he won the title of best RHS trainee in 2011. He later went on to become a horticulturist at the garden, developing an interest in ornamental grasses and leading the redevelopment of the grass borders at Seven Acres.

Mandy Alomond has left Hampton Court.  Alex Denman returns from maternity leave in early 2014 as shows development manager.

Former shows development manager Bob Sweet is retiring while shows director Stephen Bennett is leaving as part of an RHS review.
