Paul is the new sales agent and brand ambassador of MNP / Suntory. “I have spent all my life in Ornamental plant production since studying at Rochford Houseplants back in 1979 (It will be 40 years next year!).
They were at the time the largest glasshouse nursery in Europe specialising ornamental plants, we had to spend 3 months in each glasshouse learning about the crops. It was a 3 year apprenticeship when you finished you had your horticultural qualifications. I also went abroad with them to work in Sweden & in Holland.
My role with MNP / Suntory as I see it, is to try to help support licensees, agents, growers & retailers who are selling Suntory® genetics to achieve greater sales/product awareness for everyone to benefit. Having worked very closely with MNP / Suntory since the launch of Surfinia® almost 30 years ago & having had our own mother stock nursery & being responsible for selling both URc & rooted cuttings, I hope to use my experience, contacts & knowledge of the industry to try to bring greater awareness & sales of the amazing Suntory® genetics both in the UK & across Europe. I hope to be able to help support not only MNP / Suntory but also the people selling & growing the product and ask that anyone with any questions/queries or help that they might need can contact me at any time.”
