Hozelock has announced the appointment of John Grayson as commercial director for UK and Ireland, Scandinavia and Southern Hemisphere.
Grayson brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to the team. Following a successful career in home décor, he moved to Fiskars where he was managing director for the UK and regional European director before moving to Melbourne as managing director for Australia, New Zealand and Asia Pacific.
Simon Davies, Hozelock Group sales and marketing director commented: “We are very pleased to welcome John into the Hozelock family and look forward to continuing to develop with our partners under his leadership.”
Grayson also commented: “I’m delighted to be joining the Hozelock Group and working with the team to maintain growth and help deliver continued success in category sectors that I know well. Adding value to this business by utilising extensive customer and global sector knowledge is a prospect that I’m really looking forward to.”
Grayson replaces Adrian Davey who has been Hozelock commercial director since joining the business in 2014. Both will work closely together over a four-month transition period, to ensure that customers are fully supported throughout the season.
