Complete Weed Control Announces Appointment of New Sales Specialist

As part of its plan to significantly increase business and provide customers with the highest level of service, Complete Weed Control has appointed Ben Smith as a new member of its head office team with immediate effect.

Ben Smith

A former general manager at Ingleby Barwick Golf Academy, a nine-hole golf course and driving range in Teesside, Ben has a strong sales background with a keen knowledge of the golf sector. He joins Complete Weed Control as sales manager, and will be based at the company’s head office in Newton Aycliffe, County Durham. 

Announcing the new appointment, Ian Graham, the company's managing director, said: "I am delighted that Ben has joined our already successful team as he brings a wealth of experience from his time at Ingleby Barwick Golf Academy and a proven sales track record. His appointment will ensure that we can continue to build on the success that we have created over the past 40 years.” 

“As we develop new as well as expand both our range of services as well as our delivery network, a strong sales team is essential. Ben joins a strong team to accelerate this process. His knowledge will benefit not only our franchisees but also our customers. This appointment is part of our ongoing growth strategy and further strengthens our commitment to our team."

“Ben will, in addition to our core business, be focussing on building the winter maintenance leg of the organisation. Although the Complete Ice Control brand was introduced to generate work in what were traditionally the quieter months, it has become a considerable contributor to the group. As such, we now feel it is time to direct some additional resource into this growing element of the business.”

Established in 1972, Complete Weed Control is the largest specialist weed control and vegetation management company in the UK. Each franchise operates to a common set of standards and procedures in providing a comprehensive service of weed control, plant pest and disease control, hydro-seeding and other related services to their customer base of sporting venues, local authorities, schools, airfields, cemeteries, industrial sites, highways & parks nationwide and remains the only company offering these services on a truly national basis.
