Headland has boosted its technical sales force with the addition of Darren Hatcher who takes responsibility for serving current customers and developing new business in Hampshire, Dorset and West Sussex.
Following 18 years in greenkeeping, crowned with the post of Course Manager at Alresford Golf Club in Hampshire, Darren and his wife took a year out to travel the world.
Returning to the UK, he worked for one of Headland's distributors, Sherriff Amenity for 6 years on the area he's covering now. "I was familiar with Headland products and wanted to focus exclusively on them," he explains. "I also wanted to become more knowledgeable technically and Headland has a reputation of being one of the most agronomically advanced companies around. When the post of Technical Manager came up I jumped at it."
Headland's Sales Director Andy Russell says that Darren's greenkeeping and on-the-road experience combined make him the ideal candidate for the job. "We are very pleased to welcome Darren into our business, to further enhance our coverage and customer support in the South of England" he said.
