Bowles & Wyer and Melmoe have revealed that they had been in informal discussions for a few months, before a joint decision was made to work together.
“John Melmoe’s addition to the B&W team is a huge boost for us” said Bowles & Wyer Chief Executive, John Wyer.
“We have always admired Willerby Landscapes, who built up an unrivalled reputation and sustained growth under John’s direction. We felt that there was a strong overlap between the two companies – we have a lot of shared values and both have developed business models built around long-term partnering with clients. We’re really excited to have John join us and look forward to learning a lot from his experience.”
John Melmoe added: “For many years there has been a natural synergy between the way John Wyer and I operate within the Landscape Industry. As a result of mutual respect, it was an easy decision for me to join Bowles & Wyer to assist them in realising their long-term goals. These are indeed exciting times and I am very much looking forward to working with the staff to assist with the progression of the business.”
The initial appointment is for two years, with Melmoe working with the landscape company on various internal projects, as well as attending board and strategy meetings.
