Richard Pyrah, AMES UK Group Sales Director has announced the creation of a new sales structure. It has designed to support the planned growth strategy for the business.
In recent months, the acquisitions of La Hacienda, Kelkay and Anchor Fast, have resulted in an overlapping network. The team has been restructured to create a single unified sales team dedicated to garden centres.
This 22 strong team will represent all the brands. It provides a single and efficient point of contact for all garden centres.
Richard said ?At AMES UK, we have some ambitious plans for the future. These include the introduction of several new major categories.
“The creation of a single garden centre sales agency team is going to be critical for efficient communications. It will ensure we continue to provide an excellent service to our customers?
Richard also announced the promotion of Al Sheppard to the role of Sales Director. He now has responsibility for developing the garden centre channel for all the AMES UK businesses. Scott McCabe has also joined the garden centre team.
?Al has been driving garden centre sales alongside me for the last three years. With over 30 years of experience in the industry, he brings a wealth of expertise to our growing business.
“The addition of Scott to the team will help to further increase our presence in the channel. We will continue to strengthen customer relationships.?
