About you and your business

I am very passionate about the lawnmower industry having been involved for over 30 years. Before embarking on my career I served my time as an apprentice toolmaker, then traveled to Australia and gained many life experiences including my passion for sales. On my return I joined a local lawnmower dealership and worked my way up from trainee mechanic to workshop manager and then sales manager before leaving to take up a position as an Area Sales Manager for an Australian lawnmower manufacturer called Victa and then on to Hayter PLC to take another sales position within their commercial division. I then jumped ship to contracting and spent six years working for Brophy PLC as Transport and Plant manager, responsible for a buying and maintaining a fleet of over 350 diesel ride-ons and compact tractors and up to 3000 lawnmowers, strimmers and other grounds maintenance equipment before setting up my own hard landscaping business First Pave Ltd which still trades today with day to day operations safely handled by my foreman Craig. I was then able to go back into the lawnmower industry joining Textron and then GGP UK in 2003 where I was Area Sales Manager for East Anglia and the East Midlands before being promoted to my current role as National Sales Manager responsible for the UK & Ireland. GGP UK is a subsidiary GGP (Global Garden Products) who are the largest manufacturer of petrol lawnmowers and garden tractors in Europe www.ggp-group.com/about/Subsidiaries/Uk We are responsible for the sales of Stiga, Atco, Mountfield and Alpina products through a network of around 500 garden machinery dealers. www.stigalawnmowers.co.uk www.mountfieldlawnmowers.co.uk www.atco.co.uk www.alpinagarden.co.uk www.mowerpro.co.uk
