by | Apr 24, 2023 | Community, News | 0 comments

AMES UK has appointed Becki Allon and Kim Huynh to its products team.

The company said the pair’s combined previous experience “includes playing an integral part in the launch of a tool brand, as well as working within garden décor and building supplies with a focus on paving and aggregates. This ‘insider knowledge’ will give the team a real edge and a truer understanding of how AMES-represented product categories sit within the current marketplace.”

The brand teased that the team will be working hard behind the scenes to put “the final touches” to a new venture for AMES UK. “Details are firmly under wraps until Glee, but rest assured that this exciting diversification will further cement AMES’ role as the garden retail sector’s supplier of choice,” it said.

Nick Jones, commercial director at AMES UK, added, “The appointment of Kim and Becki is the definition of ‘dream team’. Their experience, knowledge and passion will work together to ensure that our product offering is not just the best out there but will also work to strengthen bestselling lines, ensure product quality, and create longevity for our family of brands.”
