Role and responsibilities:
I am Trustee of the ORC and Chair of the Finance Committee. I am CEO of Organic Farmers & Growers CIC (OF&G).
Aside from my CEO duties at OF&G I am also currently Chair of the UK certifiers group, the UK representative on the IFOAM EU Council and a Director of the Organic Trade Board. I am from a farming family and helped establish Calon Wen, a Welsh organic dairy farmers co-operative, in 2000, which secured the first ever branded organic milk listing in a UK major retailer amongst a number of other innovative projects. I have been a supporter and proponent of organic production since my days at Harper Adams in the 1980’s and I am keen to see organic principles and practise take their rightful place as a fundamental cornerstone within a new agricultural and food system and see ORC as a key enabler of that process.
Interests outside of ORC:
I enjoy trail running, cycling and painting.
