Eason Horticultural Resources has added 3 new members to the national sales team, Steve Maddox, Tom Eaton, and Gary Eaton.
Steve Maddox is a resident of central New York and will be calling on customers in New York and western New England. Steve is also employed as the Director of Partnership Development for Bower & Branch, and has extensive experience working with independent garden centers. Steve was previously a sales person with the Henry F. Michell Company, calling on customers in Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio. Steve brings experience in selling a broad range of product types, including nursery, tropicals, perennials, and liners and plugs of annuals. Steve served as the President of the Ohio Nursery and Landscape Association in 2016. Steve and his wife Heather are outdoor enthusiasts.
Tom Eaton is currently representing Bower & Branch and selling nursery products for Eaton Farms to independent garden centers and nurseries in New England. Tom brings a strong level of enthusiasm for the independents, and has been very successful building relationships with some of the best garden centers and nurseries in his market. He is excited about adding flowering tropicals to his portfolio, knowing that his current customer base is perfectly suited for, and in need of, the top quality tropicals that EHR’s suppliers provide. Tom will continue to represent Bower & Branch to independent garden centers along with his responsibilities with EHR. Tom, his wife Aimee, and their 3 children will soon be relocating to Connecticut.
Gary Eaton is also currently representing Eaton Farms and Bower & Branch. Like his brother Tom, Gary sells almost exclusively to independent garden centers and nurseries, calling on customers in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, New Jersey, and Tennessee. Gary’s customer base will also benefit from the ability to buy flowering tropicals from EHR’s high quality suppliers in Florida, as well as being able to broaden their plant palette with top quality Oregon grown nursery products. Gary lives in Leesport, PA with his wife Kelly and his 2 year old son Jack.
