People: New appointments at BPEX

BPEX has appointed two new Knowledge Transfer Managers, following existing members of staff moving to take up new roles.

The East of England will be covered by Andrew Palmer who used to work for Dent's and helped with the closure of one of the units when the firm went into administration.

Andrew has a wide experience across the industry having worked on a number of units both indoor and out. He will be taking up his new position with BPEX on 1 September.

Kate Ashman will be covering the south of the country and will be taking up her position on 1 October. She comes from a farming background and has been running the family farm which included a 1000 sow outdoor breeding unit.

Knowledge Transfer Lead Steve Winfield said: "It is good to have been able to recruit two such high calibre people whose experience will be a great benefit to the industry."

"Coincidentally, both of them have taken part in the BPEX Professional Manager Development Scheme so have both practical skill and have undertaken further training."
