Lees leaves industry after 30 years

Director of business at HTA will be sorely missed

Alison Lee, director of business development at the Horticultural Trades Association (HTA), has decided to leave the industry. She has much experience of both horticulture and agriculture, including farming in Papua New Guinea with Voluntary Service Overseas and then on her own. She was a farm management accountant, before joining the National Farmers’ Union (NFU) as horticultural adviser in Cornwall, and was later NFU policy adviser for the south-west of England. Lee said: “After nearly 30 years in the industry it is time for a change. I have decided to help my husband expand his business.” HTA director general David Gwyther said: “Alison will be sorely missed by us and by the industry. Her contribution to our business development projects and to helping ornamental growers has been considerable over the six years she has been with us.”
