E.P. Barrus has extended its Garden Division with the appointment of Helen Woodward as National Account Manager for WOLF-Garten and Wilkinson Sword garden tools and Energizer batteries.
Helen brings over six years of industry experience to her new role, in which she will be responsible for identifying new business opportunities as well as looking after a number of key accounts including the Blue Diamond Garden Centre account. Helen has previously worked for Sutton Seeds, starting as a regional sales manager before being promoted to key accounts manager looking after Mole Valley Farmers, Blue Diamond and Hillview Group to name but a few. However, she was eager for a new challenge.
“I applied for this role after seeing an advert on the Garden Forum. Although it was a hard decision to leave my last position, it was such a fantastic opportunity to join an extremely well-known and well-respected brand within the industry that I had to go for it,” explains Helen.
“In the few weeks I have been at Barrus I am already impressed by the efficiency and professionalism of the company and I am looking forward to working closely with Martin Seddon and Mark Hewett, both very experienced in the tools sector, and becoming an integral part of the team,” adds Helen.
