Glen Sheldrake joins Yarnton Home & Garden as Managing Director
We are delighted to welcome Glen to Yarnton Home & Garden.
Glen cut his teeth in several large multi-site garden centre businesses and prior to joining us, he was Operations Director at Burford Garden Company, playing a pivotal role in making the independent garden centre the huge success it is today. He brings to Yarnton a wealth of knowledge and experience from across the gardening industry.
So, what attracted Glen to the role of MD?
‘The potential of the business. Yarnton Home & Garden has been undergoing a huge transition over the last four years and it has come a long way. I am delighted to work with the team to help it reach its full potential. I believe independent garden centres have an opportunity to retail in a unique and exciting way.
‘Yarnton Home & Garden is exciting because it has set its stall as the garden centre doing things differently, and I am looking forward to delivering a retail space that has sustainability, creativity and a desire to create the best possible retail space for customers at its core.’
