Team member David

David Bland

Managing Director
David always dreamed of running his own business and kind of 'fell into' the industry at a young age. He soon developed a passion for flowers, but wanted to be able to offer the client a more complete overall service.

​David oversees the business development at Bon bloemen as well as buying​ directly from Dutch auctions on a daily basis.

​He’s a mad Man Utd fan!
Team member Danielle

Danielle Horn-Bland

Managing Director
Danielle is the brains behind Bon bloemen. She is driven and highly organised.

​You might find it hard to believe, but Danielle has been her own boss since she was 19. When she was 20 she opened her own retail flower shop and then made a 'natural' progression into the wholesale side of the industry.

Danielle manages all of the company accounts and looks after the day to day payments in and out, as well as being a full time mum.

Team Member Josh

Joshua Gray

Sales
Josh joined Bon bloemen in late 2012 and has been a real hit with customers and staff alike.

His everyday warehousing skills have become a key factor in the company's daily organisation. From packing flowers to price-labelling, he is a vital cog in Bon bloemen's wheel. His ability to adapt to various roles has been very encouraging as has his overall development in a very short space of time.

Josh has matured through the years as his responsibilities have changed completely, which is always good for any soon-to-be dad.

He's a true spartan, always committed to the job and prepared to go the extra mile for anyone. Chris is a jack of all trades, master of most. He taught himself coding, and designs websites in his free time.

Don't worry if you're ever after a late delivery north of the Tyne, Chris and the Blythe express will be there.

Martyn Barry

Delivery Driver
Martyn is a figure of fun when he's out on his routes, always eager to please customers with a smile on his face.

He used to be a chef before he became a driver for Bon bloemen, so avoid talking to him about food if you want your delivery finished on time!

He hates the snow.

Cute dog Blu

Blu

Good Boy
Blu is David and Danielle's dog, but he's firmly part of the Bon Bloemen family.

He may be small, but he's got a big heart!
