Rainer Schubert succeeds Jeff Kwiatkowski at Scotts Miracle-Gro

Rainer Schubert has replaced Jeff Kwiatkowski as Scotts Miracle-Gro Consumer UK Business Group sales director.

Kwiatkowski has become vice president of sales for the Lowe’s account in Scotts’ US business after almost two years in the UK.

Schubert has worked for Scotts for three and a half years, most recently in a senior national accounts position. He came to Scotts after working in the paints industry for ICI Paints (now Akzo Nobel) for 11 years, and before this he worked in the beer industry.

He has worked in senior roles in sales, consumer, marketing, and category management.

He said: "Scotts is a great company with exceptionally successful brands and products.
We have a responsibility as market leaders to drive category growth, and I am absolutely
looking forward to working with our retail partners to meet this challenge."
