VegTrug Ltd has appointed a new UK sales manager. Mark Crowley will join the company, which produces self contained, raised vegetable gardens, this month.
Mr Crowley has worked in the gardening industry for over eight years and has previously worked for Haxnicks and Mercia Garden Products, being a key player in its expansion across the UK.
Paul Owen, UK director for VegTrug, said: "The timing of Mark's appointment is in keeping with the very fast growth in demand that VegTrug continues to see world-wide. Mark will oversee the growth of the UK domestic sales at a very opportune time. We have very exciting new products launching and Mark will be very keen to meet with UK based garden centre managers and buyers as soon as possible. Our core UK domestic business is growing extremely fast and we are delighted to have [him] onboard to strengthen the management team and add some support resource for our UK customers."
Mark is said to be relishing the challenge. "VegTrug has a great name within the gardening industry and I have noticed its increasing presence in garden centres. I very much wanted to be part of this growing innovative company."
