Crest Garden has increased its sales team with the appointment of a national account manager and a new area sales manager.
Katie Smith (pictured right) joins the company as national account manager responsible for national, multiple, online and key international accounts. Her experience includes business planning, sales training and organising in-store events.
Commenting on the appointment, commercial director Colin Smart said: “Katie brings a vast amount of big brand experience to the Crest Team and we look forward to her driving the award-winning Crest brands forward.”
Hannah Shoesmith (pictured left) knows the garden industry well, joining Crest as area sales manager from a well known garden centre where she was an experienced buyer of garden sundries.
Crest Garden sales manager Adrian Aitken said: “We are really pleased to welcome Hannah to the team. Her experience of the garden centre shop floor and buying office will be a huge benefit in her new role. With both our ‘Dig for Victory’ campaign and the launch of our Autumn promotions, Hannah has exciting times ahead.”
