Henton & Chattell, the UK’s leading distributor of powered garden products, has announced the appointment of Leigh Bowers, as a Product Specialist.
Within this role, Leigh – formerly of Allett Mowers – will be working closely with ground care professionals, both in the private and public sectors, providing demonstrations of the latest machinery offered from Henton & Chattell’s range of brands including EGO, Cobra and Allett. Leigh will also be supporting dealers with Billy Goat’s unique range of lawn care products.
“Our customers trust Henton & Chattell to deliver great service and quality products. We have been distributing products across the country and generating great customer satisfaction for 87 years, and I am thrilled to become a part of it all,” he said. “My new role will see my current experience in customer support and business development only expand thanks to the vast array of brands Henton & Chattell has. I am thrilled to be joining Henton & Chattell and I look forward to embarking on this new adventure working alongside a strong team.”
From garden machinery beginnings, Leigh joined Allett Mowers – part of Turfmech Machinery Ltd – in 1999, gaining invaluable experience and knowledge within the role as sales director. Leigh then made the move to Henton & Chattell in December 2018.
“We’re delighted Leigh has joined our team. Despite the tough 2018 season, we remain focused on growing our coverage of the UK and Ireland. He will work closely with customers to support and develop their business. Leigh has a breadth of knowledge, he is well known and respected in the industry,” added Peter Chaloner, managing director of Henton & Chattell.
