Anglia Farmers Limited appoints new group CEO
Anglia Farmers Limited, the UK’s largest agricultural purchasing group, has appointed Jon Duffy as group chief executive officer.
He will join Anglia Farmers on March and take over the role from Clarke Willis, who is standing down after 15 years at the helm.
Duffy graduated with an HND in Agriculture from Plymouth University. Between 1996 and 2005 he was managing director of Gleadell Agriculture. He joined Frontier Agriculture in 2005 as trading director before becoming Frontier’s business development director between 2014 and 2016.
For the past two years he has also been chairman of the Agricultural Industries Confederation.
He said: “I am delighted to be joining AF and very much hope to build on the good work done by Clarke and his team over the years. Whilst much of UK Agriculture has recently been going through a period of change and uncertainty, the future of AF is incredibly bright and my aim is to improve the business for the benefit of its members. We live in exciting times and I cannot wait to get started.”
