Squire's Garden Centres have appointed Mark Wilson as their new finance director.

He joins Squire’s having worked for Unilever for nearly 25 years in a variety of finance, buying and corporate strategy roles, as well as working for 10 years as finance director at fresh produce glasshouse grower Vitacress.

Squire's managing director Martin Breddy said: "I am delighted to announce that Mark Wilson has joined Squire’s Garden Centres as our Finance Director, replacing Steven Palmer who retired at the end of April after 8 years service at Squire’s. 

"Mark is very familiar with our business, having lived for many years near our Woking centre, and is now based in Fleet, near our Badshot Lea centre and the Group Office.

"He joins Squire’s with extensive knowledge and experience, and I and the rest of the team look forward to working closely with him to continue developing and growing the successful family business."
