Steve Harper leaves growing media supplier Vital Earth

Managing director of the growing media supplier Steve Harper is stepping down from his post after five years in the role.

Bord Na Móna took over as distributor for the brand in the UK in early 2012.

Harper said: "Given the success Vital Earth has enjoyed both as a brand and as a company, I know that I am leaving it in good shape for the future, and that therefore the time is right to do so.  I am looking forward to a new challenge and to making an equally positive impact with another business."

Harper has yet to take up a new position. A successor has yet to be appointed.

News of Harper's departure follows the appointment of Peter Rush at growing media firm William Sinclair, Rush has replaced Bernard Burns as managing direcotor.
