Germinal appoints new amenity technical sales representative for Scotland and North East England
Germinal has recruited Stuart Tait as its new amenity technical sales representative for Scotland and North East England.
Based from his home in East Lothian, Stuart will provide technical sales support to Germinal’s customers throughout Scotland and North East England, and will be responsible for promoting the company’s popular range of Grade-A sports and amenity grass seed mixtures to golf course greenkeepers, turf growers, sports groundsmen and landscapers.
Stuart will also be responsible for promoting Germinal’s specialist amenity fertiliser range which includes conventional compound products as well as liquid and phased-release fertilisers and specialist sward conditioners. He will also promote Germinal’s range of regional and general landscaping wildflower seed mixtures.
Stuart joins Germinal with 17-years’ worth of experience within the turf industry: he started his career as a trainee greenkeeper at Gullane Golf Club (No.1 course) in East Lothian before working his way up from assistant greenkeeper to head greenkeeper at The Renaissance Club, North Berwick. For the past three-and-a-half years, he has worked in sales-orientated roles, initially spending a year with Sherriff Groundcare before joining Reesink Turfcare as the company’s area sales manager for the Lothians, Borders and Fife where he has been selling Toro equipment to customers in the golf and groundcare sectors.
“Stuart is a very experienced turf care specialist with a huge amount of experience, not only in terms of golf course maintenance but also within the wider sports ground and landscaping sectors,” says Richard Brown, Germinal Amenity Sales Director. “He is also well known to many within Scotland’s golf and turfgrass sectors and as such is well-positioned to promote Germinal’s wide range of specialist grass seed and wildflower mixtures throughout his sales territory.”
