Rosebourne appoint Carol Paris as Chief Executive

The Directors of Rosebourne are delighted to announce that Carol Paris has recently been appointed as CEO to head up the Rosebourne executive team.


For many years Carol was Operations and Buying Director for Garden & Leisure, a wholly owned subsidiary of the French garden centre chain, Truffaut. Garden & Leisure was sold to Wyevale in 2013 and Carol moved to become CEO of the Horticultural Trades Association. The role involved representing the interests of the horticultural industry to Government and other stakeholders. Carol also sat on several external boards to represent the horticultural industry, including the British Retail Consortium, The Trade Association Forum, AHDB Horticulture and the Horticultural Innovation Partnership. More recently Carol has worked as a Consultant to suppliers in the industry.


Charles Good, Rosebourne Chairman, has known Carol for well over ten years and is delighted to welcome her on board at these unprecedented times.


Neville Prest is standing down and is taking a Non Executive Director role. Valerie Kempster, Jon Kitching and Salim Sajid the other 3 executive directors will be continuing in their roles as at present.


The company is making full preparation for when the centres will open again while most staff are furloughed, in the meantime the company is operating a delivery service to its customers on a limited range of garden products, furniture and food boxes.
