Published: 19 October 2017 - Fiona Garcia

Former B&Q horticulture buyer, who left to take up a role at Dobbies, has made a return to Kingfisher this month.

Kingfisher, today, confirmed that Steve Guy had joined the company as head of sales for outdoor categories.

Mr Guy spent 13 years at B&Q, rising through the ranks to category trading manager for horticulture, garden power, garden equipment, garden structures and housewares.

He left the Kingfisher-owned chain in January 2013, shortly after Euan Sutherland’s departure, joining Dobbies in the role of head of buying for horticulture and garden. He was promoted to buying and merchandising director two years later.

In June this year it was announced that Mr Guy would be leaving the garden centre chain when newly-appointed CEO Nicholas Marshall brought in his own management team and re-shuffled the buying division.

At the time he said he was actively seeking a new role, which he hoped would be within the garden industry.

Mr Guy’s expansive career in the horticulture industry began with roles at Farplants Ltd and then 10 years spent as wholesale manager at Bridgemere Nurseries.
