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. With both our ‘Dig for Victory’ campaign and the launch of our Autumn promotions, Hannah has exciting times ahead."

The Crest Garden brands of Kent & Stowe and Flopro received three major Awards at the recent GIMA Awards ceremony covering product, marketing in-store and international sales which is a great credit to the team and reflects the level of investment which has been made in the business.
