Thompson & Morgan is pleased to announce the appointment of Bryan Magrath as Chief Executive. Formerly CEO of James Hull Associates, Vision Express and MD of Dixons Stores, Bryan takes over today in planned succession from John May who, after 17 years in post will remain on the Board as Deputy Chairman.
Bryan brings a wealth of marketing, consumer focus and organisational strengths as well as being an enthusiastic recreational gardener.
Established in Ipswich in 1855, T&M has grown to become the UK’s leading brand for supplying seeds, plants and other related items to recreational gardeners through its catalogues, websites and in garden centres. Its reputation for quality, exclusivity and depth of range is helped by its unique and multi-award winning breeding activity.
Bryan Magrath said, “I am very excited to be joining Thompson & Morgan to lead the next phase in the life of this very special company – the nation’s favourite horticultural brand”.
John May said, “We are delighted to welcome Bryan to Thompson & Morgan. I have served for over 17 wonderful years as Chief Executive, and the time is absolutely right for this succession. I am looking forward to the future with great confidence.”
