After 40 years working in the horticultural landscaping industry, 33 of which has been with Willerby Landscapes as managing director, John Melmoe is handing over the reins to the Willerby Management team following his decision to take early retirement in March 2017.

The company has been working towards the smooth transition of responsibilities during the past three years by recruiting key management positions to support the continued growth of the business.

Having secured a number of prestigious landscaping projects over years and winning accolades in the process, Willerby Landscapes management team are now firmly placed to continue on these successes and to steer the company through the next exciting phase of its transformation.

Rick Davies operations director says: “It is business as usual for the company as we enjoy continued success and growth. It’s a change in leadership, not a change in our strategy of being the leading hard and soft landscaping company in the UK.”

    Having worked with John, Rick and the Willerby Landscapes team on the London Olympic Stadium, both before and after The 2012 Games (and elsewhere), I can honestly say it’s always been a pleasure to work with them. Their proactive and team-oriented approach helped keep the stress levels down and quality of delivery high. On behalf of my colleagues, I’d like to wish John a well-earned, and happy retirement, and the rest of Willerby’s continued success.
