Published: 12 March 2018 - Kiran Grewal

For the first time in the history of its 'Sales Manager of the Year' awards, Chairman of Smart Garden Products, Paris Natar, was able to congratulate more than one winner who will share the trophy over the coming year. Stephen Kenny (Barrowbridge Ltd) covering the Republic of Ireland along with Mikki and Stuart Miller (All You Need Ltd) in East Anglia were announced joint winners for their fantastic performance in 2017. 

Having just completed his second full year with Smart, Mr Kenny was absolutely delighted with his achievement, he said: “It’s been hard work but incredibly rewarding, and my win here today just highlights how quickly Smart has become the leading solar brand in the industry. A steady stream of innovative products and great service makes them a great team to partner with.”

Mr Miler commented: “It’s a privilege to have won the award this year, especially as we were the runners up last year. We are very lucky to have access to such an extensive and innovative product selection, along with fantastic packaging and merchandising solutions from Smart, it makes the ranges easy for us to sell and for our customers to buy.”

All of the winners wanted to extend their thanks to the Smart team and also to their customers for their continued support. Managing director, Jonathan Stobart, echoed these sentiments saying: “Whilst I offer special congratulations to Stephen, Stuart and Mikki, all of our sales managers work incredibly hard in their areas, and the Smart team appreciate their passion for our products. However, it is our customers who make all the difference – as we continue to grow, we look forward to further strengthening our relationships and building a presence in store which ensures that the consumer is given fantastic choice and value for money.”

Smart Garden Products started in 2003 and has built up a reputation for design and innovation in solar powered consumer products under the name Smart Solar. In 2014 the company changed its name to Smart Garden Products and now cover six distinct garden product categories.
