The new roles see Amy Watts joining as environmental seed product manager and Diane Foley as regional seed manager, east. Both are new positions in the company, supporting the department’s specialism nationally.
As environmental seed product manager, Amy’s priority will be to develop the national environmental, conservation and game seed portfolio for Wynnstay. In her previous role, Amy was technical and sales support at DLF for this area, so brings ample experience she is keen to share.
Di will be focusing on expanding Wynnstay’s seed activity in the east. She also comes to the role as a well-known expert in the sector, having previously worked at Openfield, Woldmash Producers and New Farm Crops.
This is a progressive and expansive time for the seed department. Bringing Amy and Di into the business means we can put resources into developing our environmental seed portfolio to support customers during the ELMs transition, as well as ensuring a specialist seed team for our farmers in the east.
