Expanding the Earley sales team

Meet Rob Swift

New starter Rob Swift has joined the Earley team as Area Sales Executive, managing customers throughout the North West and Midlands and all of Scotland. Some of you may have met Rob already but if not, here’s a little more about him.

How did you get started in the industry?

From an early age I’ve always been interested in ‘natural things’ and at the age of 14, I bought several polytunnels, growing plants to sell at local shops.

Where did you work and what did you do before joining Earley Ornamentals?
Having managed my own plant growing business, I sold it at the age 27 and moved into horticultural sales. Since then I’ve worked for Syngenta for 19.5 years selling young plants, seed and genetics, two years fertilizers sales to the industry and likewise, four years selling horticultural plastics such as packs, pots, containers and trays for Desch-Plantpak.
What does your typical day involve?

Most days I spend visiting and supporting customers, and developing new relationships with potential new accounts.

What is the best aspect of your job?

For me it’s the variation I experience day to day – new, geographical locations, different business types and interesting personalities. Plus dealing with a natural, living product that gives enjoyment to people and enhances the environment.

What is the best thing about working at Earley?

It’s a great British-based business offering a good range of own and third party products not to mention the flexible and friendly team! 

How do you unwind after a hard day at work?

If I’m not working and its daylight, then I will be usually outdoors, walking, birding and appreciating the natural world that surrounds us.
