New chairman for garden centre group Choice Marketing

Trevor Wenham of Garden Pride Garden Centre in Ditchling has been elected as the new chairman for Choice Marketing.

Trevor Wenham took over from Paul Elding at Bourne Valley Garden Centre.

Sam Bosworth of Bosworths Nursery & Garden Centre becomes the vice chairman.

Wenham, who owns the largest centre within the group, said:

"I am delighted to be taking over the chairmanship for the next couple of years. I will do my best to expand the group and to continue to grow our Group rebate to well over £1m this season working closely with our Associate Suppliers. We will also be appointing a new marketing & design agency shortly so we can continue to push forward with high quality media to our customers".

Trevor Wenham's appointment followed Choice Marketing's 8th AGM and conference which was held over two days last week.

Michelle de Lavis-Trafford of Choice Marketing said: "We had a brilliant couple of days, plenty of time for networking with several of our key suppliers in attendance and the group just goes from strength to strength ".
