East Yorkshire firm Soanes Poultry has restructured its board of directors as it prepares for future growth.
Third generation family board member, Andrew Soanes is joined by wife, Sarah and son John, who is currently completing his studies at Harper Adams Agricultural College and will return to the family farming business later in the year.
Soanes Poultry’s general manager, Nigel Upson joins the board as managing director and Claire Wright is promoted from financial controller to finance director in the restructure.
Andrew Soanes said: “Nigel has been successful in giving the business direction and a greater sense of purpose, positioning our local, rural business as a producer of great chicken with high ethical values in national markets.”
Internally, former sales co-ordinator Ben Lee has been promoted to head of sales and marketing and will lead the company’s new business development and marketing strategy.
Soanes Poultry is a family-owned business that has been rearing and preparing chicken for over 70 years.
