Hannah Shoesmith knows the garden industry well, joining Crest as area sales manager from a well known garden centre where she was an experienced buyer of garden sundries. Crest Garden sales manager, Adrian Aitken, said: "We are really pleased to welcome Hannah to the team. Her experience of the garden centre shop floor and buying office will be a huge benefit in her new role.
