New council member for GIMA
Maryanne Stokes, sales and marketing manager of Vital Earth, has recently been elected to join the GIMA Council.

Peter Field, GIMA President told us: "It is vital that we keep brining new blood onto Council from a variety of our members to ensure we continue to be representative of our industry. It is a pleasure to have Maryanne from the Vital Earth and Genie brands of peat-free growing media and plant feeds joining Council."

Ms Stokes, formerly area sales manager for the south, joined Vital Earth in December 2006 following more than fifteen years in the garden industry, including buying and operational roles at both Wyevale and Haskins Garden Centres.
