London, England: With the retirement of David Briggs and the appointment of two product specialists, Campey Turf Care Systems has a new look to its team as it embarks on its 30th year of business.
Briggs had been with the company for 15 years. He joined Campey as a product specialist in July 2000 and was successful selling across the whole range of products marketed by the company.
On announcing his retirement at the age of 67, Briggs said: “I have loved the travelling, meeting people from all over the world – not just the United Kingdom – and being able to promote an excellent range of products to an industry I love.”
Richard Campey was sorry to see the departure of Briggs. “During the past decade-and-a-half, David has played a huge part in introducing new products and techniques to the groundscare and professionals in his area.
“We thank him for all of his efforts and contributions over the years. He has been an extremely valuable member of the team and we wish him a long and enjoyable retirement.”
New members of staff Steven Dun and Simon Holland have both come from the turf industry.
Holland has gained significant experience in machinery sales during his time with a well-known agriculture and groundscare dealership in Nottinghamshire.
Dun, meanwhile, has achieved success as a greenkeeper in charge of an Open qualifying course. This was followed by branching into sales for Toro equipment and groundscare machinery for several years.
Meanwhile, John Campey has become Product Specialist for a large swathe of Europe including Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Italy, while Lee Morgado has taken on responsibility for sales in France, Spain and Portugal.
A Full Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation, Campey is one of Europe’s largest independent grounds care machinery dealers, supplying equipment to countries in most parts of the world.
The company acts as a new equipment dealer for some of the most respected grounds care machinery manufacturers including Dakota, Imants, Koro, Raycam, Vredo, Omarv, Votex, VGR and GT Air 2G2 injector.
