Squire's Garden Centres has announced the appointment of Ed Ridgeon as manager of its Woking centre.
He has been at Squire's for six years, as assistant manager at both the Badshot Lea and Twickenham centres. Prior to joining Squire's, he was in the finance sector.
Mr Ridgeon's passion for horticulture stems back to his university days, when he studied for his biological sciences degree.
His new role will be to maintain a great shopping experience for customers in Woking.
Squire's deputy chairman Sarah Squire said that Mr Ridgeon's "experience in horticulture, as well as his retail and financial knowledge, will ensure that Squire's in Woking continues to be successful, and offer a friendly shopping experience for local residents."
Squire's Garden Centres will be celebrating its 80th anniversary next year.
