Ivyline has enhanced its internal team with the recruitment of Chris Owen as the brand’s new national sales manager.
Chris has been part of the garden retail industry for over a decade with previous roles at Mr Fothergill’s and most recently, Darlac as general manager. His responsibilities will include overseeing all aspects of sales, including key account and multiple customer management. He will also be working as part of Ivyline’s wider sales team.
Talking about his new role, Chris said: “There are a million reasons why joining Ivyline feels like the right thing to do. From a collaborative approach to doing business, to a young team full of fresh ideas, it’s a brand that welcomes newness, celebrates innovation and champions sustainability. I’m excited to get involved and to leave my mark on the future of Ivyline. I’m also excited to learn even more from people such as managing director Scott Thomas, whose development of the company has inspired me from afar for many years.”
Scott added: “We are delighted that Chris is joining to further strengthen the team. It demonstrates our clear intent to deepen our commitment to the garden centre market. Chris comes highly recommended, particularly for his passion to go above and beyond for the customer.”
