Wyevale Nurseries appoints new amenity sales executive

Alan Young from Cheltenham in Gloucestershire has re-located to take up the role this month at Wyevale Nurseries, which is based in Hereford. He will work on tenders and quotes for existing customers, as well as developing new business.

Mr Young said: “I am very excited about my appointment… I’m really looking forward to being a part of a horticulturally-focused and driven sales team. 

“My whole career has been in horticulture and I intend to bring my previous experience and knowledge to the position, having worked in sales previously for some well-known wholesale nurseries in the South East.

“A re-location to Herefordshire means I am looking forward to meeting many new customers. However, with a strong portfolio of customers based in the South East and Wyevale Nurseries’ strong logistics network means I can still continue to supply quality plants to my customers old and new across the UK.

Wyevale Nurseries offers a full plant range and choice to the amenity and landscape sector from native transplants, container grown shrubs and perennials right through to field grown trees. 

Mr Young added: “Being able to offer the full range of British grown stock for supply to new and exciting landscape schemes really is a drive for me.

“With superb heritage, Wyevale Nurseries celebrates 90 years’ in 2020, yet clearly defined direction as it heads into the new decade, I’m really excited to be part of the team as it moves forward.”

Prior to his role at Wyevale Nurseries, Mr Young worked as sales development manager at Agrumi Ltd in The New Forest.

He has also worked for various nurseries including Clifton Nurseries in Surrey, Coblands Nurseries in Kent, Tendercare Mature Plants in Buckinghamshire and Clarke & Spears International Ltd in Surrey.

Wyevale Nurseries managing director Andy Johnson said: “We’re pleased to have welcomed Alan to our sales team. He has a wealth of knowledge within the industry and this will only benefit our already hardworking and experienced amenity team.”
