New board members as Haskins eyes expansion
Lisa Looker, who has been director of marketing for three years, and recently-appointed finance director Glenn Carroll join the board, which currently comprises chairman Warren Haskins, chief executive Julian Winfield and buying director Conna Powles.

The appointments come as the £31.6m-turnover family-owned company plans to increase its number of garden centres from the current four south coast centres to six and redevelop its Snowhill centre near Crawley.

Julian Winfield says the company is now prepared to tackle the next phase of expansion: "We're now well placed to make the largest investment yet in the company's 133-year history," he said.

"Glenn Carroll brings with him a wealth of experience from various sectors of commerce and industry, and Lisa Looker has brought new professionalism to marketing and promotions, also innovations to our point of sale, which is appreciated by customers."

Haskins' most recent development was at the Roundstone centre near Worthing, which in 2012 had a £13m rebuild complete with 550-seat restaurant.
