Hillier appoints Adam Dunnett to board

Hillier Nurseries has announced the appointment of Adam Dunnett to its board of directors, effective from April 4, 2019. He will also continue in his role as amenity sales director.

Hillier chairman Robert Hillier commented: “We are delighted to welcome Adam to the board; he brings with him a wealth of industry experience. Our top-quality trees have always been a huge part of Hillier business and our amenity team continues to go from strength to strength. We are delighted to have more representation at board level and are excited for the future.”

Mr Dunnett joined Hillier in 2018. In his role as amenity sales director, he leads the sales team and helps drive tree sales across all key customer market sectors, promoting Hillier Trees as the leading supplier of high quality, UK grown semi-mature trees.

Horticulture is a passion that runs in Mr Dunnett’s family — his father was managing director of Blakedown Nurseries for over 40 years. His own career started with an apprenticeship at the tree and shrub grower Ellis Brothers Nurseries then, after college, to Webbs Of Wychbold where he held a number of roles, culminating in running the wholesale division for more than 10 years. A move into retail followed, as plant buyer for both Blooms Garden Centres and then Wyevale Garden Centres. His last position before joining Hillier was with Wyevale Nurseries as its sales and marketing director.   

“Hillier is a business I’ve admired for more than 30 years, either as a competitor or customer,” he said. “I feel honoured to now be part of the board of this wonderful family business, which has been part of horticulture for over 150 years. The team I’ve joined is full of experience and, more importantly, has massive enthusiasm to continue driving the business forward. As one of the few UK growers of semi-mature trees, we have a very exciting future ahead of us.”
