Features, News, Sport, Trade News / 3rd May 2019

STRI Group is delighted to announce the appointment of Gary Smith as an agronomic consultant, based in its Scotland office.

Until recently he was employed by Symbio UK and previously at Agrovista UK and Scott’s UK (now ICL) for 14 years.

 

Paul Woodham, STRI’s general manager of agronomy, said: “It’s an exciting time to welcome Gary who comes with a wealth of technical knowledge and industry experience. Gary will be a great addition supporting our operations across the business.”

 

Smith is one of several new faces to join STRI Group in May, as the business continues to grow across its global territories.

 

Consultant Samantha Maxwell joined STRI’s Melbourne-based business SportsTurf Consultants; Katie Breare and Oliver Thornton are the new trials officers at STRI’s UK research team.

 

STRI Group’s recent expansion has also seen new roles created, for a Planning & EIA consultant, as well as a CAD technician, in its new Consultancy division.

 

Lee Penrose, STRI Group director, said: “STRI is always searching for ambitious and talented individuals to continue our growth as the leading provider of turnkey plan, design, build and operate services into sports developments. Engaging with industry leaders such as Gary ensures our work exceeds the expectations of our clients.”
