Having given 22 years service, Nick Darking has been rewarded with promotion to General Manager of Surrey based Charterhouse Turf Machinery (CTM).

CTM are the UK arm of Redexim, the Dutch manufacturer of many leading types of groundcare equipment including the iconic ‘Verti-Drain’ aerator.

Nick, 41, began working in the workshop in 1989 and has moved up the sales tree through being a Demonstrator; Territory Manager and latterly Sales Manager.

Herman de Bree, Sales & Marketing Director of Charterhouse Turf Machinery, said of the appointment: “Nick has been our ‘man on the ground’ for over 22 years now and it is fitting that he steps up to General Manager status.  His solid understanding of our unique product range has helped the company maintain its market leadership in Aerators, especially large scale ones that we have pioneered.”

In any spare time that Nick has he likes to play a round of golf and take in as many music concerts as he can, although he says: “Now having the responsibility of being General Manager will limit free time, but will be worthwhile as we project CTM into the next phase of its history.”
