Burns Named Bailey Territory Sales Representative
Bailey Nurseries has hired Stuart Burns as a territory sales representative. In this position, Burns will partner with customers in the Minneapolis–St. Paul metro area in Minnesota as current Bailey sales representative Brenda Wickenhauser transitions into retirement. Bailey would like to thank Brenda for an amazing 26 years. She will be missed by all who were fortunate to work with her, and we wish her a fantastic and well-deserved retirement.
Burns joined Bailey two years ago as an inside sales representative supporting customers in Michigan and Ohio, and providing consumer support on the Bailey brand websites.
“Stuart has proven that he is willing to learn, share his knowledge, and provide our customers with the products and tools to help them be successful,” said Dan Bailey, sales manager. “I am very excited to have Stuart share his passion about plants and exceptional service to our customers.”
Holding a degree in horticulture from the University of Wisconsin–River Falls, Burns’ education and previous experience with landscape design and community landscape projects, combined with his sales experience at Bailey, will provide valuable background as he begins this new role.
“This is a really exciting time to be part of the nursery industry, where new genetics are the talk of the town and innovative thinking is leading the way,” Burns said. “I am very humbled to take on my new position and I cannot wait to continue to grow with our customers.”
