Husqvarna UK has announced that after 26 years Professional manager, Kevin Ashmore, will retire from his role at the end of 2020.
The company says, having worked in the industry for 38 years, Kevin, with his wealth of knowledge and passion for the business, has become a highly valued colleague within the Husqvarna Group.
Discussing his retirement, Kevin said, “Within my 26 enjoyable years of working at Husqvarna, I have had the pleasure of undertaking a number of different roles with the company. During this time, I have strived to meet all of the challenges that they brought, without forgetting to experience the many opportunities that working at Husqvarna has offered me along the way.
“It is not only those memories that will remain with me but also those of the people that both made, and still make, Husqvarna the company I have had the pleasure of being a part of. I am looking forward (along with my wife), towards starting a new planned chapter in our lives and a fresh challenge in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland shortly.”
The UK Professional team and regional Professional business manager, Arian Essenstam, will work closely with Kevin to ensure a smooth transition.
Ken Brewster, commercial director at Husqvarna UK said, “Everyone at Husqvarna thanks Kevin for his outstanding contribution, for being a valued colleague and friend, and for his commitment to our dealers, customers and the Husqvarna UK team.”
All at Service Dealer wish Kevin all the very best on his well-earned retirement.
