Wyevale Nurseries appoints new commercial sales director

Ian Wright (55) has joined Wyevale Nurseries as commercial sales director, heading up three sales teams across all product and market sectors.


He was previously 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 worked for various nurseries during his career, including Grangemore Plants, Hallmark Plants, Johnsons of Whixley, Robin Tacchi Plants, Deepdale Trees Limited, J A Jones Nurseries and Tacchi’s Nurseries.


Ian studied horticulture at Askham Bryan College and has a HND in landscape and horticultural technology.


In his spare time, Ian enjoys watching football, playing cricket, looking after his allotment and ballroom dancing.


Wyevale Nurseries MD Andy Johnson said: “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.”
