Evergreens UK expands with new recruits

Rutland-based Evergreens UK – a supplier and installer of artificial grass products – has bolstered its team with the appointment of four new members of staff.

Matt Shemilt joins the firm as an area sales manager, making the move from an internet marketing role and will implement new ideas that will help to drive the brand forward and strengthen Evergreens UK’s offering to its clientele.

Shemilt, who will spend his time meeting clients and surveying properties, said: “I’m delighted to have made the move to Evergreens UK. I love it because it’s an incredibly rewarding role. From installations I have already been involved with, I have seen our LazyLawn product literally change people’s lives.

“From the elderly and disabled who are unable to tend to their grass to the incredibly busy, modern homeowner who simply does not have the time to put into maintaining their lawn – I’ve seen artificial grass make a huge difference and really make people happy”.

Phil Mitchell has been appointed as Evergreen UK’s new web developer and design manager. He will work alongside the design and marketing team.

Mitchell moves from a similar role at a Leicester based accountancy firm and will spend his time expanding the company’s digital marketing offering and ensuring its website is functioning well.

He said: “Evergreens UK is a fantastic company to work for with lots of growth potential. It really encourages employees to have an active influence in brand growth and identity and this is something I’m really looking forward to having an input in”.

Mel Rumbelow has been recruited as sales advisor and will work primarily for Evergreen UK’s trade division.

She said: “When I met the team I knew instantly the role was perfect for me. Everything about the company just felt right. Evergreens UK is a great company and I absolutely love my new role”.

Faye Smith joins the team as licensee account manager and will work primarily across the LazyLawn brand.

Smith will spend her time in her new role business planning, marketing planning and helping LazyLawn’s licensee network to grow within their own regions.

She said: “As this is a brand new role, this is such an exciting opportunity and it’s great to join the business at a time of such growth.

“I hope to do the very best job I can for our fantastic licensees. It also inspiring to work alongside the rest of the team who are so passionate about what they do and incredibly experienced”.

Andy Driver, sales and marketing director for Evergreens UK, said: “I am looking forward to working with the four new team members. They’re all settling in brilliantly and will contribute to our development and growth.

“These new positions demonstrate how quickly our company is growing and developing and we look forward to a very bright and prosperous future”.
