The UK’s leading gardening gloves and footwear supplier, Town & Country, has appointed a new area sales manager for the South East region.
Vicky Shine has traded in a career in the city with some of the UK’s biggest investment banks, to pursue her life-long passion for gardening and a role with one of the industry’s best known brands.
Barry Page, chief executive at Town & Country says: “Vicky joins Town & Country at a very exciting time in the company’s development. The recent revitalisation of the brand, which has seen a refreshed look, new products, packaging and merchandising solutions making their way into the marketplace, is helping to create a vibrant new presence in garden centres and is already delivering tangible results for our retail partners.”
Vicky’s interest in the world of horticulture began when, as a teenager, she worked at Ruxley Manor Garden Centre in Kent and also led to her volunteering for many years at Wildlife Aid, a wildlife sanctuary in Surrey.
