Adriaan (Bas) Kamp

Managing Director

After completing a degree in Horticulture and Floral Design in the Netherlands I began an international career in the Flower Industry, working abroad as a Floral Designer and later with flower wholesale companies.   My experience covers countries such as America, Canada, Switzerland, England and Greece.  Several years later I discovered Australia and my Australian Bride. Since 1993 we have happily made Brisbane the home for our family and the base for “Petal Peddlers”.  My wife Melanie had a career of over a decade in the legal world and now enjoys her commitment to managing the administration side of our Petal Peddlers business. We invite you to contact us to discuss how “Petal Peddlers” can assist your business.
