Glee Buyers Power List 2019: the winners

The Glee Buyers Power List has been set-up to recognise the individual buyers and buying teams who have gone above and beyond to make a difference within the garden retail industry this year. Voting has been open since early summer, with nominations flooding in from all corners of the market. This afternoon (Wednesday 11th Septemberat a special ceremony the winners were revealed.

Speaking at the Glee Buyers Power List awards ceremony, which was well attended by retailers and suppliers alike, Glee’s Event Director Matthew Mein confirmed: “The Glee Buyers Power List was set up to recognise a key group of decision makers in the gardening industry who have often been overlooked: garden retail buyers.  Through this initiative, we are pleased to be able to celebrate and reward their hard work and dedication.  Our huge congratulations to all of the winners, the finalists and the many excellent shortlisted nominees.”
