BPEX has appointed Andrew Knowles as its new head of technical as part of a restructuring at the organisation.
A new strategy has been developed and part of that involves merging the knowledge transfer and research and development functions into a single team.
BPEX director Mick Sloyan said there are tremendous challenges ahead, but he was sure Mr Knowles would rise to them.
“Since BPEX was created, the industry has changed quite markedly so the organisation has also needed to change,” he added. “The appointment also ties in with the new strategy for BPEX which will be launched at British Pig & Poultry Fair.”
“I am very excited about the chance to lead a new BPEX technical team,” Mr Knowles said. “It’s an opportunity to harness the extensive knowledge and expertise within the team, and to work with colleagues in the allied industry, veterinary profession, research and supply chains to support levy-payers.”
