Allied industry manifestos


I'm extremely passionate about collaboration within the pig industry. I've worked in this sector for 25 years, starting out working on pig units in Scotland. For the last 20 years I have been with ABN in a number of commercial roles and am currently National Sales Manager.

During this time, I've seen our industry come together to successfully meet a host of issues, and firmly believe this is down to the commitment and expertise of all our dedicated people.

Today, our industry faces fresh challenges, including the reduction of antibiotics, zinc and copper, Brexit, biosecurity and our ability to attract young people to work with pigs.

I've made a career out of bringing people and ideas together to build compelling propositions that deliver on what our industry needs. I would look forward to contributing to the Allied Industry Group and to the work needed to shape the future of our industry.
