Paul Trowman has joined John Deere as national account manager for turf equipment, as of 1st July 2009. He replaces Joedy Ibbotson, who has moved to John Deere European Office in Mannheim, Germany to take up the role of commercial segment manager.
Paul was previously general manager of Newmarket based The Grass Group (a trading name of Trilo UK Ltd), where he was responsible for the sales, marketing and distribution of Trilo, Tycrop and various other turf related products. He started his career in the turf business with this company 11 years ago, after studying agriculture at Shuttleworth College and Cranfield University.
"I am naturally looking forward to establishing relationships with John Deere's key national account customers in the turf sector over the coming weeks, and to the further development of this important area of the company's business in the UK and Ireland," he said.
