Steve Elms joins Vitax Supaturf Ltd in the newly created role of Export Sales Manager.
Responsible for co-ordinating and expanding the company's export business interests, Steve, who started his career in greenkeeping in 1976, brings considerable overseas experience to the post having worked as a Course Manager in Switzerland, Denmark, Germany and the Caribbean.
Now based in his home county in South Wales, he is looking to develop his career in a field that he knows, which will still allow him to travel. "I've known Vitax since my first days as Head Greenkeeper," he says. "It's a well established company with a good reputation, which I'm sure I can develop further." Managing Director Charles Platt says that up until now, Vitax's export sales have been dealt with by different people in different divisions. "With the recent expansion of our overseas sales, the creation of a full-time position became essential" he explains. "Steve's unique experience not only of the industry but also its application in different European countries makes him the ideal candidate for this new role."
