Building on the success of their UK ruminant business, ForFarmers has appointed Dr Mark Cole as Managing Director of the newly established Ruminant Operating Company (OpCo).
With over 30 years of commercial and business experience in the Agricultural Feed Sector, Mark brings extensive international expertise and perspective to the role. He joins ForFarmers from Carr’s Group where he held the position of Business Development Director, having previously been the Managing Director of Carrs Billington Agriculture (Sales).
Prior to this Mark worked with ForFarmers in both the UK business and in Group roles firstly as Micro and Speciality Purchase Director, and then Special Projects Director, which included leading the Integration of the Polish business, Tasomix into the ForFarmers portfolio. He has also held senior roles at Cargill (formerly Provimi) both in the UK and internationally.
Mark is excited to return to ForFarmers and he is looking forward to leading the Ruminant OpCo into its next growth phase.
“This is an exciting time to be re-joining the business and I’m looking forward to leading the development of the Ruminant OpCo,” says Mark. “Building on the success of ForFarmers ruminant business, we are looking forward to continuing to support farmers across the UK with feed solutions.
“While my technical background is animal nutrition, I have built up considerable experience in both commercial and general management which I am looking forward to bringing to this role.”
