Essex-based Louis King has been appointed territory manager for Kent and most of London by Mr Fothergill's. He comes to the Suffolk seedsman from a similar role with Unilever. Prior to this, Louis lived in Sweden for eight years, where he was a semi-professional footballer.
Announcing the appointment, Mr Fothergill's joint-managing director David Carey said "This is an additional territory manager appointment, bringing us up to 16 in our field teams. We believe we have the largest UK seed-dedicated field-team in the market and our team expansion is in keeping with our belief in being 'traditional' seedsmen, and the importance of customer service and seed stand management. This belief has been reflected in several sales successes in recent years".
Louis King will be introduced to Mr Fothergill's stockists in the near future. In his leisure time he continues his keen interest in football and gym work.
