Promar International, the farm and agri-food consultancy within Genus, has added three experienced consultants to its team, each who have worked for the business before.
Neil Adams becomes regional consultancy manager – south with responsibility for the delivery of Promar services across the south of England through a team of consultants. Mr Adams started his career at Promar, before moving to English Food and Farming Partnerships and then the Organic Milk Suppliers Co-operative. He returned to Promar in 2012 to work in the special projects team
“Neil’s depth of experience within the agricultural industry, coupled with excellent leadership skills, will be of great benefit in his new role as we look to work with farmers to develop sustainable strategies for their businesses,” comments Promar managing director James Dunn.
Matt Sheehan rejoins Promar as a principal consultant in the midlands.
As well as spending 1994-2004 with Promar, he has worked for Dairy Farmers of Britain, Dairy Crest and NSF International.
Nigel Davies was a regional consultant with Promar for five years in the late 1990s before moving to HSBC in a variety of roles from agricultural manager to commercial director. A Welsh speaker, Mr Davies is charged with growing Promar’s consultancy offering in Wales, as well as in training and developing the company’s supply chain contacts.
“Farmers are demanding a more strategic approach from their consultants as they develop robust businesses in a more volatile and challenging environment. These appointments will extend the breadth of experience we can draw on when working with customers,” concludes Mr Dunn.
