Since 2013, he has worked with a number of sports pitch contractors in the UK delivering many successful projects. Andy’s new role at GreenFields UK will expand upon this and will see him working on a national basis to increase links and sales opportunities with contracting partners. Andy is passionate about developing a sustainable solution for recycling old, end of life pitches, something which GreenFields is also keen to develop further in the future as part of our eco philosophy.

Andy is looking forward to starting his new role just after the May bank holiday, he commented: “I feel really privileged to be joining the team at GreenFields. It’s an exciting time to be in the synthetic sports pitch market and coming to a company that is synonymous with providing the highest quality, and for delivering systems designed to maximise performance, is a real honour. I look forward to renewing old partnerships – and hopefully building a few new ones.”

Stephanie Jones joins the GreenFields team in the role as Estimator bringing with her five years’ experience in estimating. Stephanie’s role is focused on preparing accurate and competitive cost estimates for a wide range of projects. At the heart of her role is working alongside the client to ensure they get their exact requirements and the best value for money, which means close liaison with suppliers to ensure competitive quoting. Hitting the ground running at GreenFields, Stephanie has already successfully passed a CAD course whilst in post along with undertaking site visits for potential and new clients, something which she is keen to get heavily involved in to ensure a greater more accurate understanding of each project she is pricing.

Paul Milton, Commercial Director at GreenFields UK commented on the new additions to the GreenFields Team: “We are absolutely delighted to welcome both Andy and Stephanie to the team. Andy is bringing with him a wealth of knowledge; his experience has seen him work with all the sport governing bodies and our own trade body- SAPCA. He will be an integral part of sales activity and development in the UK. New in post, Stephanie has professionalised even further our estimating approach and has an extremely organised, accurate way of working which is perfect for her role.”

GreenFields would like to wish their new team members good luck in their new roles!
