Wyevale Nurseries appoints new commercial sales director

Published: 23 July 2019 - Fiona Garcia
 

Ian Wright joined the business this month and will head up three sales teams at Wyevale Nurseries, with a view to driving sales through all product and market sectors. 

Prior to his role at Wyevale Nurseries, Ian Wright worked as a sales manager at Boningale Nurseries in Albrighton, selling trees and shrubs to the amenity market. He handled a number of key accounts and managed a team of five sales executives and four administrative staff. 

He has also worked for various nurseries including Grangemore Plants, Hallmark Plants, Johnsons of Whixley, Robin Tacchi Plants, Deepdale Trees Limited, J A Jones Nurseries and Tacchi’s Nurseries.      

Mr Wright said: “I am very much looking forward to taking up my role as commercial sales director… I am excited to be coming on board with the business at such an exhilarating time and I feel enormously lucky to be joining, not only a very experienced and talented sales team, but also a business that has great knowledge, experience and a desire for quality.

“As well as heading up the sales teams, I will be using my instinctive commercial judgement to strengthen relationships with customers and suppliers to ensure Wyevale Nurseries continues to offer a market leading product range and service.”

Ian studied horticulture at Askham Bryan College and has a HND in Landscape & Horticultural Technology.

Wyevale Nurseries managing director Andy Johnson said: “I am delighted to welcome Ian into the Wyevale Nurseries’ management team. Ian comes to us with extensive experience in the amenity sector, which is so important to us, given our extensive market-leading operations in trees, transplants and premium containers.

“His appointment will significantly strengthen us on that side of the business during the next phase of development. It will also allow me to spend more time working with our retail team ensuring we stay at the forefront of garden centre supply as new and exciting opportunities emerge on that side of the business too.”
