Einstein once said that experience is the only source of knowledge. If this is true, and who are we to doubt him, then Cresco’s knowledge of spreaders runs extremely deep.
Responsilbe for Group Performance, Marcus initially started his entrepreneurial journey with an HAC and HND in Agricultural Marketing and Business Administration from Harper Adams University. He has been involved in the business of pedestrian spreaders since 1985, managing multiple companies within the industry. He also oversees the performance of our sister companies, Cena Outdoor and Accugrit Ltd. Weekends are spent cheering on Leicester City Football Club and cooking up a storm on the Big Green Egg.
If Lawrence is considered the apprentice, then Michael is most certainly the master of pedestrian spreaders. You would be hard pressed to find anyone with more knowldge of the intricacies of how they spread and how to extract the greatest amount of precision. He has been working with spreaders since 1980 and has culminated all his knowledge into the development of the Cresco range of products. Michael manages key accounts for Cresco and heads the development team to ensure every spreader made is of the highest quality.
Lawrence often jokes he spent his summers calibrating spreaders in what could be construed as child labour! However, he must’ve had plenty of free time somewhere to have played tennis in Barcelona for five years before graduating from American University on a tennis scholarship. As it turns out, his misspent youth unwittingly made him the perfect candidate to head up Cresco sales. In his spare time, he likes to injure himself by signing up to obnoxiously difficult sporting events and walking one of the many Cresco mascots, Bodi.
Mo gets a hard time in the office as he supports Arsenal Football Club. A red among blues, he takes the wise-cracks on the chin and continues about his day the same way he does with his work - calmly and methodically. Mo organises all shipments and logistics and oversees all deliveries of orders. He is the first point of call for any administration queries and is the general problem solver of the group. He is in many ways the glue that connects all aspects of the business. In his spare time, he patiently waits for the return of the glory days under Arsne Wenger.
Initially from Tenerife, Spain, Alex has been living in the UK since 2012. Managing marketing materials, email communications and more, Alex can work with you to offer your team what they need to boost sales. Alex is also the self proclaimed, ‘strongest man in the office’. We haven’t had a contest yet and we’re not keen to either as Alex is a keen gym goer in his spare time! Despite his dubious milk to coffee ratios in the morning he is a key addition to the office character and a fantastic person to be heading our marketing department.
Piotr works so hard, we had to build him his own house in the warehouse! He is here there and everywhere and is undoubtedly the busiest man in the company. His relentless work in development, testing thousands of fertilisers, and his determination to ensure quality checks on all spreaders has culminated in over 30,000 of the highest quality spreaders to be sent out each year. Initially from Poland, he likes to spend his spare time with his wife and little girl, hiking the different areas of natual beauty around the UK.
The searing heat from Punita’s radiator is a reassuring feeling both in winter and, albeit more uncomfortablly, in summer. For when the heat is up, we know that Punita is working away to make sure our business is steamrolling in the right direction. By ensuring all of our accounts are in order and making sure no stone is left unturned, Punita solidifies the foundations upon which Cresco grows. She also plays a pivitol roll in our sister companies, Accugrit Ltd. and Cena Outdoors. So, we can forgive her for the radiator always being on!
Having worked as a chef in an Italian Restaurant for most of his life, Arjan worried us greatly on his first day when he tried to put tin foil in the microwave! His pasta dishes have more than made up for this, but he has been unable to live it down! Arjan is a wizard when it comes to assembling spreaders. Some say he holds the world record for the number of 30 litre capacity, pneumatic wheeled painted steel spreaders constructed in one hour. Unofficially the record will officially never be broken! Initally from Albania, Arjan likes to spend his spare time spending time with his family.
