New leadership duo takes over management of Gartenland GmbH


Ralf-Peter Matthies and David Schulze Hillert have been managing the business of Gartenland GmbH since January 1, 2020. With their experience in the field of garden, forestry and municipal technology, they continue to drive the positive development of the company.


Two versed experts in the fields of garden, forestry and municipal technology took over the management of Gartenland GmbH in Zeven on January 1, 2020. Together Ralf-Peter Matthies and David Schulze Hillert look back on over 30 years of experience in the industry. With this expertise, the two new managing directors will in future expand the Gartenland product range with exclusive brands for the specialist trade, intensify existing cooperations and further optimise the logistics concept.


Ralf-Peter Matthies has been responsible for purchasing and sales at Gartenland GmbH for the last five years as an authorised signatory. Prior to this, he spent eleven years in various positions in the service and sales departments at DOLMAR, the specialist for motorised tools. We consider ourselves fortunate to have been able to secure his valuable insights into the industry and the company for the long term. Matthies will be responsible for and drive forward the wholesale trade with the Gartenland range.


With David Schulze Hillert, the FRICKE Group has been able to gain an additional expert in the field of municipal technology for Gartenland GmbH. The graduate industrial engineer looks back on 15 years at AGRAVIS Raiffeisen AG. Among other things, he worked there as service and branch manager. His main area of responsibility at Gartenland GmbH will be the further development of trade and service activities in connection with the manufacturer Kubota.
