Planters begins search for new garden centre general manager

Planters has begun a search to find new Garden Centre general manager after news that Stuart Gooden will be leaving his position.

After 14 very successful years, Planters centre manager Stuart Gooden is looking to take it slightly easier and is moving to the South West.

During his time at Planters (Tamworth), the company has doubled turnover to ?5m, invested over ?3m in the 20 acre site including ?1.6m in a state of the art restaurant, created a tourist attraction with ?SkyTrail? and built a pet centre (including dog grooming) to just short of 10% of turnover, as are Christmas decoration sales.? The company has been a regular member of the GCA Centres of Excellence list, and in the last 5 years been Garden Centre of the Year.

The search begins to find a new General Manager, hungry for success and ready to contribute to a 10 year plan, which will put the garden centre into the top 10 centres for turnover and profitability in the UK.
