EP Barrus has welcomed new area sales manager Tracey Moss, who will work across the WOLF-Garten, Wilkinson Sword tools, Energizer Batteries and Toolflex brands.
Looking after central, northwest England and Wales, Ms Moss will be drawing upon her vast experience of the sector, having worked in the gardening industry for nearly 13 years as a buyer for an independent gardening and DIY store, and working in retail since the age of 17.
This experience will prove invaluable, as a key role for Ms Moss is to work with independent garden centres, and to identify new opportunities for the brands within them, strengthening E P Barrus's commitment to supplying garden retails.
Said Ms Moss: "I saw the position at Barrus as an opportunity for me to progress with my career and I was looking for an opening with a company that not only had strong brands but also strong company values.
"The more I heard about Barrus, my gut instinct told me it was the right move for me. I'm looking forward to continuing to grow professionally, building lasting relationships with my customers and growing the brands even further."
Garden Division general manager Nick Hills is equally optimistic and excited about Ms Moss' future in the company, stating, "We are thrilled to welcome Tracey to The Barrus Garden Division. Having spent such a substantial amount of time in the industry, we knew that Tracey would be a great addition to the team and I look forward to her contribution and future success."
