BPEX: Takes on new staff members

Two new members of staff have joined BPEX, both with a remit involving pig health.

Ross Lake is Regional Health Co-ordinator working on the Eastern Health Project, funded by the East of England Development Agency. Manda Sach is Health Database Co-ordinator, replacing Veronica Wright, who has left BPEX.

Ross was introduced to the pig industry aged 13, working weekends and school holidays on a commercial pig unit until gaining an OND in Agriculture at Shuttleworth College of Agriculture.

Most recently he has been a Contracts Manager involved with tree surgery and vegetation management.
Before joining BPEX, Manda worked for the Animal Health and Welfare Business Unit for ADAS for 18 years. During this time she was involved in delivery of both corporate and government-funded research, undertaking various cattle, pig, poultry, sheep and dairy studies.
BPEX Head of Knowledge Transfer, Research and Development, Mike Varley said: "I would like to welcome them both. "Manda and Ross have a great deal of experience which will be of benefit to both BPEX and the industry."
