Take up roles

Headland Amenity have announced the appointment of two new technical managers in the form of Laurence McCrory and Jack Hawkes.

Both will be responsible for delivering 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 (pictured above) has been in the turf care industry 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. He will now be providing additional support to customers from the Bedfordshire area and below. 

He said, “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. Since I joined in October, I have already learnt so much and have met some really dedicated turf professionals who I look forward to working with more in the future.”

Jack Hawkes meanwhile has joined from Leamington & County Golf Club, in the role of regional technical manager for sports turf - which will see him support customers from football, rugby, cricket, educational facilities and private estates. A keen sportsman himself, Jack is also an FTMI graduate and was selected as an R&A scholar which provided excellent networking opportunities and the chance to work at the French Open, hosted at Le Golf National. 

“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.
