David Greenshields is Amenity Product Manager for Barenbrug UK. He has worked for Barenbrug for ten years in a variety of sales, R&D and management roles. David particularly enjoys seeing a new cultivar through final trials before coming to market and advising top sports facilities on grass seed usage. David’s background was in academia – he has a PhD. in Plant Genetics from Edinburgh University and a Master’s degree in Environmental Biology from St Andrews University. In his spare time he tries in vain to hang onto a decent golf handicap whilst “managing” family life with two young daughters and a border collie.
