Headland Amenity has welcomed two new technical managers – Laurence McCrory and Jack Hawkes. Now part of Origin Amenity Solutions, Headland’s latest appointments will help with the growth and development of the brand. Laurence and Jack will be responsible for delivering Headland’s scientific advice and guidance on product selection, Laurence to customers in the South of England and Jack to Sports Turf Managers in the South and Central regions.
Laurence has worked in turf care for 26 years, holding various positions at a number of golf courses including his most recent role as Course Manager at Castle Royle Golf Club in Reading. Having used Headland products throughout his career, Laurence relished the opportunity to combine his knowledge and passion for the industry with a change of direction in his career with this new role – and is now on hand to offer additional support to customers from the Bedfordshire area and below.
“I had fantastic first-hand support from Headland throughout my career and it is a brilliant opportunity to now use this confidence and knowledge of their product range to advise and plan programmes for others working in greenkeeping,” he says.
Likewise Jack was also a user of Headland products during his time at Leamington and County Golf Club. He joins in the role of Regional Technical Manager for Sports Turf and will support customers from football, rugby, cricket, educational facilities and private estates.
“In the short time I have been at Headland I have broadened my knowledge and have enjoyed working with customers to understand their unique needs and expectations, whether that’s a Premier League football club or local village sports facility!” says Jack. “With Headland now a member of Origin Amenity Solutions, it’s an exciting project to be a part of, with an industry-leading range of tools and opportunities at our disposal to help our customers in achieving their goals.
