Institute of Agriculture and Horticulture announces appointments
THE Institute of Agriculture and Horticulture (TIAH) has appointed five new trustees to its board.
Becci Berry, Jilly Greed, John Haynes, Jon Florsheim and Stephen Oldfield, have joined the charity with a range of expertise.
Chairman David Fursdon said: “TIAH is passionate about becoming the home of skills, careers and professionalism in agriculture and horticulture, and supporting individuals through their development within the industry. Each trustee has either personal experience of agriculture and horticulture or shares a passion for propelling the industries forwards, so we are thrilled to have their insight as we prepare to launch TIAH."
Jilly and John have first-hand experience of farming and the understanding of the challenges of working within the industry, Becci has extensive commercial knowledge and came into farming later in her career. Stephen has an accountancy background and has worked with multiple agricultural businesses while Jon is experienced in the digital sector which TIAH intends to draw on for its online services.
All trustees will be non-executives on the board but will help guide the organisation to deliver its aims and strategy.
