Gardener’s Supply Co. welcomes new president

Gardener’s Supply Co. has announced Rebecca Gray as its new chief operating office, following the retirement of Cindy Turcot, who had held the position since 2020.

Gray brings nearly 20 years of experience in the e-commerce space. She joined the company in 2018 as vice president of merchandising, eventually overseeing all of the company’s merchandising and marketing activities. During her time at the company, Gardener’s Supply has seen record growth, greatly expanding their digital footprint, increasing new product development, and expanding to five retail garden centers in Vermont, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts. Gray says she is excited to continue the company’s growth path, while maintaining the company’s culture and founding mission.

“Gardener’s has an incredible culture. Being 100% employee-owned and a certified B corporation, we are motivated to make a difference, and use our business as a force for good,” she says. “As a company of gardeners, our employee-owners truly believe that gardening can change the world, and we’re positioning ourselves to be able to share the transformational joy of gardening with even more people across the country.”

Outgoing CEO Cindy Turcot was a founding employee of Gardener’s Supply and previously served as chief financial officer and chief operating officer. She worked closely alongside Gray over the past year to share her deep institutional knowledge and create a seamless transition for the company.
