Bord na Mona national account sales manager Maryanne Stokes has also left.
Steve Harper left as Vital Earth MD in December. Bord na Mona took over sales and marketing at Vital Earth in January 2012.
Bord na Mona is Ireland’s state peat company, which is now diversifying into other utility services.
Recent Bord na Mona figures show 92 per cent of Ireland’s peat harvest goes to power stations, while eight per cent is used in gardening.
A Bord na Mona statement said: "Guaranteeing a continuous high quality UK supply of peat-free, peat-reduced and peat-based product, Bord na Móna UK (BNM UK) is forging ahead with new infrastructure to develop both its branded presence and its already considerable own brand business in the UK. This follows its expansion into the UK market for branded composts in its first full year since taking over the sales and marketing resource of Vital Earth in January 2012."
Bord na Mona retail head John Corcoran said: "BNM is committed to driving its business in the UK and offering its customers a full range (from peat to peat-free) of products. Top quality products combined with guaranteed supply in terms of volume and logistics put us in a great position to move forward with expansion plans in the UK."
