Suttons new accountant says seed company is "going places"

Neil Woodrow, a chartered accountant, has joined as commercial director at Suttons and has worked for Coca-Cola, Inchcape, Smith & Nephew and Readers Digest.

He said: "It is great to join Suttons at such an exciting time in its long history – the management buy out. Many changes have already taken place, especially over the last 12 months and one of my roles is to ensure that we keep on track to build our company to be a thriving, successful business where everyone feels a valued part of our future together.

"Already we have invested in a greener and more economical way of working – new LED lighting in the offices and 250Kw of aolar panels. A new 15,000sqft  mezzanine will provide much needed space.  Our new IT systems on both retail and direct will provide us with the right information on which to make even better business decisions. This is a business that is going places and I am looking forward to being part of our future."
