Tracey Moss will work across the WOLF-Garten, Wilkinson Sword Tools, Energizer Batteries and Toolflex brands, covering central and north-west England and Wales.
Moss has worked in the gardening industry for nearly 13 years as a buyer for an independent gardening and DIY store.
"Tracey is to work with independent garden centres and identify new opportunities for the brands," said garden division general manager Nick Hills.
"Having spent such a substantial amount of time in the industry we knew Tracey would be a great addition to the team," he said.
Moss added: "I'm looking forward to continuing to grow professionally, building lasting relationships with my customers and growing the brands even further."
