Kate Morris, Trader

My Role

I’m a trader based at Shepshed, and key contact for the south with responsibility for brewer's grains, caustic wheat and bread sales out of various sites across the country. 

My career so far

I’ve been with ForFarmers for just under a year. Although this is my first role in the agricultural industry, I have extensive experience in account management. For 15 years I worked in advertising for the Yellow Pages, before then working as a sale team leader at a villa holiday company. Coming from a sales background, I’ve always enjoyed building strong relationships with customers and this is particularly important in my current role.

Striving for the best

Every day is a new challenge and brings an opportunity to learn something new. ForFarmers have been great in supporting my development and helping me grow my knowledge of agriculture. I’ve loved every second and it’s been fascinating learning more about the industry we support.

I also work alongside fantastic colleagues. While we are all responsible for different areas, there is a strong sense of teamwork and support for each other whenever it is needed.

When I’m not at work

I enjoy spending my free time at festivals and gigs. I love metal and rock music and some of my favourite bands are Mötley Crüe, AC DC, Guns N’ Roses and Black Stone Cherry.
