New director for garden centre sales at Gardman

Gardman has promoted Duncan Ross to become director of garden centre sales. The announcement follows the retirement of Sue Sharp from the role earlier this year.

Ross has been with Gardman since 2007, was most recently national sales manager for Garden Centre Independents and previously held national account manager roles. 

As director of garden centre sales he will focus on the development of Gardman’s independent customers as well as supporting the experienced sales agent team. He will report to recently appointed sales director Bernard Shannon.

Shannon said: "It’s vital that our internal management structures are designed to support our ambitious business plans, and having a senior director dedicated to the needs of our independent garden centre customers illustrates how important this segment is to us and our future plans.  I am really looking forward to working closely with Duncan and I am confident that his many years of industry experience will stand him in good stead."
