Green-tech is celebrating after their key account manager has been named as a winner of the Pro Landscaper ‘30 under 30’ – The Next Generation Initiative.
29-year-old George Barton has been selected as a winner in the industry awards that look to discover 30 of the most impressive young people within the arboriculture, garden design, horticultural and landscaping sectors.
30 Under 30: The Next Generation, is an initiative run by Pro Landscaper to help promote the breadth of career opportunities available and to attract young people to the industry.
George started at Green-tech in 2018 in the warehouse where he learnt about the business from the ground-up. Demonstrating a hunger to progress and a keen interest in sales, George moved into the sales department where he flourished, and his career has gone from strength to strength. He has secured several promotions and is today one of only five key Account managers at Green-tech. He is also an ambassador for BALI GoLandscape and visits schools and colleges to inspire the next generation into the industry.
Commenting on his success George said, “I am absolutely delighted to be a winner of the Pro Landscaper’s 30 Under 30. I have worked my way up in Green-tech to the position I am in today and I’m so proud that my achievements have been recognised outside of my organisation. This is a fantastic industry to work in and these awards reflect the high standards that we work to.”
Green-tech’s Managing Director Kris Nellist adds, “George is the eighth person from Green-tech to have achieved this high accolade since the 30 under 30: The Next Generation was first launched in 2014. I am genuinely proud of this and of our company ethos that supports and nurtures our young people to reach their full potential. George works hard and is well respected by his peers and customers alike. He has a bright future ahead and I wish him every success.”
The official awards ceremony will be held at FutureScape 2023 on Tuesday 21st November at 12pm.
