Tree supply, plant and relocation specialist, Glendale Civic Trees division, has appointed James Shipman as landscape supervisor.
In this new position for the organisation, James will be responsible for managing and growing the company’s landscaping activities, supporting the sales team and leading the teams on site to ensure project targets are achieved. He will be the first point of contact for the organisation’s clients and designers.
Chris Mills, general manager of Civic Trees, said: “James has a very impressive portfolio. He has been carrying out hard and soft landscaping for six years and brings with him a wealth of experience managing accounts with high-end clients and designers.
“Civic Trees have been providing landscaping services for a number of years but has always relied upon outsourcing more technical elements of the work. With the addition of James we now have the ability to deliver all of our landscaping services in-house, and with his experience, we will be looking to target the high-end domestic market as well as blue-chip companies in the future.”
Over the next few months, Civic Trees aims to continue growing its landscaping activity by building a strong team to work under James.
James said: “Landscaping is a career I want to pursue for the rest of my life and I am excited about starting the next chapter with Civic Trees.
“I have always been interested in what the company were all about and I’ve never been so excited to start a new job before! The role will give me the chance to experience some new challenges and reignite my passion for all things landscaping.
“One of my first goals is to take responsibility for the landscaping activities at Civic Trees and ensure they are delivered to the usual high standard and build good relationships with new clients.”
