A British independent supplier of specialist fertiliser and pesticides to the professional amenity sectors has strengthened its sales team. Headland Amenity has made the appointment of Alex Hawkes to Regional Technical Manager for the Sportsturf sector in the South.
Alex brings with him nearly 20 years' experience in Turf Management. His career spans five different golf courses, including The Oxfordshire and The Nottinghamshire, with the last 10 years as Course Manager at Paultons Golf Centre and latterly South Winchester Golf Club.
"I'm very much looking forward to working with Headland Amenity", commented Alex on his appointment, "not least because of Headland's reputation, but because I feel I can make a considerable difference. I relish the challenge and the opportunity to contribute to the company's future development."
Alex lives in Chandlers Ford in Hampshire with his wife of 11 years and spends most of his spare time on one of his three bikes. In the past three years he has ridden London to Paris; two separate mountain stages of the Tour De France, and is signed up to two more events this year. All told he has raised over £ 6000 for Parkinson's UK and The Alzheimer's Society in the process.
