Lady Greenkeeper joins Headland.
By Carol Dutton
Lucy Townsend joins Headland Amenity as Regional Technical Manager for the South West.
Responsible for promoting the company, working with distributors and giving technical support to end users, Lucy, formerly with Copt Heath golf course in Birmingham brings over seven years greenkeeping experience to the post, and is looking forward to using her Turf Science degree from Myerscough College.
"The industry is very technical now and you really need to know what you're talking about," she says. "I live in Bournemouth so I'll be meeting people in the whole of the South-West. It's a nice part of the country."
Headland Sales Director Andy Russell thinks that Lucy's background makes her ideally suited to the company's approach to turf care. "She's got both the practical, greenkeeping experience and the technical understanding needed for the job," he commented.
