Pannell has expressed his excitement to work with Countrywide’s UK-wide network and he will assist in developing the network’s partnerships across the UK.

Speaking on his appointment, he said: “I’m excited to join this respected and trusted organisation, and I look forward to starting my journey with Countrywide. The brand’s UK-wide network has all seen impressive growth year upon year, and I am thrilled to be working with a progressive and forward-thinking team.

“I can’t wait to be part of the Countrywide story with the main goal of helping our operatives serve more customers and create more attractive and sustainable environments.”

Pannell spoke on his commitment to customer service and how his goals and values are strongly aligned with the company’s vision. “Paul McKeown, Managing Director, has a clear and exciting vision for the brand,” said Pannell.

“I want to continue helping more organisations across the UK deliver quality environments and landscapes for local people to enjoy and look forward to continuing this with Countrywide and assisting their growth,” he added.

“Countrywide is organically growing into new sectors such as property management, retail, social housing, and healthcare, and I want to continue that process in my new position”.

“We are a customer-focused organisation that is large enough to cope with large-scale contracts across the UK, whilst still offering the service and care of a smaller company, serviced from our UK-wide depot network, who are at the hearts of their communities.”

Countrywide has been delivering grounds maintenance solutions to commercial customers since 1986. The organisation now has 46 regional offices, making it one of the largest grounds maintenance companies by coverage area in the UK.

Their network offer their expertise across various sectors, including education, local authorities, the ministry of defence, and healthcare.
