Our sister company, Glendale Horticulture is pleased to announce that Laurence Scowen has joined the business in the role of managing director, effective from January 2017.

Laurence has a varied background, initially in Life Sciences and Agriculture, working with international companies including Schering Agrochemicals and Covance Inc.

More latterly, he has operated for almost seven years in a very similar managing director role, for DLF Trifolium UK Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of one of the largest, temperate grass breeding and marketing companies.

He also held responsibility as regional manager for a team of field agronomists covering the south-west for one of the leading UK agronomy companies.

Commenting on his appointment, Laurence said: “I’m delighted to be joining Glendale Horticulture at such an exciting time in the development of the business. One cannot fail to be excited by the breadth, depth and quality of the product range and I believe my relevant background, coupled with my experience in a number of similar internal projects will prove invaluable as the business shapes itself for the future.”
