Solus appoints new sales director
Formerly sales director at Churchill China, Ms Philpott's experience in multi-channel retailing and managing sales teams, both in the UK and abroad, will help Solus strengthen its relationships with garden centres across the country.

Solus managing director Nick Davies said: "May has high-level expertise in retail sales and we are delighted she has agreed to join us. This is a very significant new appointment for us, alongside other recent additions to the sales team from inside and outside the industry."

"May's appointment further strengthens our commitment to reacting faster to customer and market demands," added commercial director Ross Yealland. "She will be key to developing the sales of our own and third party brands."

"This is a great opportunity to head up a sales team within a company that offers a diverse product portfolio and is recognised as a market leader," said Ms Philpott. "The retail sector is going through an unprecedented time of change. Balancing this with traditional ways of retailing will be a challenge all round, which I look forward to embracing.

"I'm looking forward immensely to joining the Solus team, working with the garden centres and learning from the industry."
