Chris Schofield joins Infinity Christmas Trees

Infinity Christmas Trees are pleased to announce the recent addition of Chris Schofield to the company in the position of Senior Account Manager.


Originally from Cumbria, Chris trained at Hadlow College in Kent, gaining a higher-level diploma in the production of hardy plants. He then joined the Wyevale Garden Centre management team, gaining valuable experience whilst working in the retail stores and as a plant buyer based at the head office in Hereford.


Chris comes to us from St Peter’s Garden Centre Worcester, where for fifteen years, he was part of the senior management team, moving from being Plant Area Manager to General Manager. During this period of time the store grew to be the large independent centre that it is today.


In his new role as Senior Account Manager, Chris will be responsible for developing new business relationships while maintaining the service current customers require with the Infinity team . Also, ensuring that the UK grown Christmas trees provided by Infinity Christmas trees, meet the exacting standards required by consumers.


“We are thrilled to have Chris on board. He will bring a fresh perspective and approach to the company, and with his in-depth understanding of running a large retail site and knowledge of retail sector requirements, he will bring a wealth of experience to the current team with him” said David Brown, Managing Director.
