John Deere announces retirement of Howard Storey


John Deere has announced the retirement of Howard Storey manager, market development for John Deere Golf after 35 years of service with John Deere and 45 years in the industry.

Manny Gan director, global golf and sports turf, said: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Howard for his loyalty and dedication to the company and for the contributions he has made over his many years of service. We wish him and his family all the best in the future.”

Announcing his retirement, Howard said: “It’s time to lift up the cutting units and return the machine to the shed. My last official day with the John Deere company was on the November 30, 2020. It has been a 35 year and nine months rollercoaster ride with some amazing highs and luckily for me very few lows.

“I have had the pleasure of working with and doing business with some fantastic people from around the world. I look back to the early days of joining the company as the agricultural demonstrator / instructor for the UK and Ireland demonstrating some of the biggest toys you could buy, to living and working in Ireland and Germany. I then became part of the golf group from its earliest beginnings.

“I have been fortunate to travel the globe more than once or twice and gain life experiences I will always treasure.

“I am not done yet! In the New Year when we have wrestled Covid-19 to the ground, I will be looking at what else life has in store or has on offer.”

All at BAGMA wish Howard all the best for a long and happy retirement.
