Hutchinsons, one of the UK’s leading agricultural input advice and product supply businesses providing agronomy advice on over one million crop hectares has appointed Gar Mills-Thomas as arable business director.
Arable Agriculture is facing a major period of transition, with less state support, more environmental demands, and evolving end-user requirements. Gary Mills Thomas’s appointment as Arable Business Director, reflects the company’s ambitions to accelerate the growth of the business, through continued focus upon outstanding agronomic advice, in conjunction with the continuing development of a wide range of specialist services.
Previously as Syngenta Country Head for the UK & Ireland for eight years, Gary brings a wealth of experience to the role with more than 30 years leadership at Syngenta, Seed and Crop Protection Business.
“I am excited to be joining a business that is so heavily committed to investing in the future of agronomic advice and supply, not just through its innovative technologies, products and services such as Omnia and TerraMap, but also through its phenomenal investment in the training and development of its people, which in my view cannot be matched anywhere else in the industry.”
“As we plan for the future, it is essential that the Hutchinsons business continues to develop and deliver the most profitable, innovative and environmentally sustainable crop production solutions to farmers. To do this, we will continue to invest in our people and services to match our customers’ needs. We are delighted that Gary shares this vision,” says Chairman, David Hutchinson.
