Evergreen Garden Care strengthens commercial team


Evergreen Garden Care UK has strengthened its commercial team with three new senior appointments within marketing and sales.


Ann-Marie O'Riordan joined the company in mid-August as Marketing Director with responsibility for brand, product and category developments. She has held a number of senior marketing roles, including that of UK & Ireland Marketing Director for more than ten years at Akzo Nobel.


With a new strategic direction and company mission, Evergreen Garden Care has also strengthened its sales team with the appointment of a new Sales Director and Head of Sales for Independents.


Sean Elkins, who joined the company at the beginning of September in time for Glee, has overall responsibility for the sales team. Among his previous roles were senior sales, category and strategy positions with one of the largest food manufacturers in the world, General Mills.


Working closely alongside Sean, Phil Harrison also joined in October as the new Head of Sales for Independent Garden Centres. Having held a variety of sales roles at Westland, Phil brings with him a wealth of experience within the gardening sector.


Mark Portman, Managing Director, Evergreen Garden Care, said: “These key appointments reflect the positive changes we are making as an organisation and further strengthen our commercial teams as we look to work far closer with our strategic customer base”.
