Somerset-based Durston Garden Products, is pleased to announce the appointment of Jerry Walker as its new national sales manager.
Mr Walker joins Durstons with a wealth of knowledge and expertise gained from working across a broad spectrum of business sectors for companies including Bostik, Kidde Safety as well as in the gardening sector with Gardman and William Sinclair where he was responsible for a number of their top accounts.
He has a long working relationship of selling to both independent and multiple retailers, which will be a major asset in his new role at Durstons.
He said: "My new position is to present Durstons products both to national and independent accounts by spending as much time in the field as possible.
"It's an exciting time in the gardening industry as more and more consumers work to turn their outdoor spaces into another room/ extension of their homes and I am really thrilled to have been given the opportunity to work for such a well respected and customer friendly business as Durstons. I am also pleased to be working once again with the gardening and DIY fraternity which is an extremely tight-knit community and a real pleasure to be part of."
