The East of England Agricultural Society has appointed William Haire to the newly-created post of New Agricultural Business Development Manager, part of the Society’s commitment to putting agriculture firmly at the heart of its activities.

William from Crumlin, County Antrim, Northern Ireland will be involved in research, development and delivery of some of the Society’s key objectives including the Farm Business Awards and the East of England Smithfield Festival.

From farming stock, William is no stranger to the world of farming. He brings a wealth of knowledge gained throughout his career including key teamwork and leadership skills from the Young Farmers’ Clubs of Ulster, Royal Ulster Agricultural Society and his Nuffield Scholarship. He is currently a partner in a family pedigree Hereford cattle enterprise and Tynedale Goat Meat marketing business.

East of England Agricultural Society Chief Executive Jeremy Staples said: “After a period of restructuring, the Society is now ready to deliver on some promising concepts and plans to operate alongside our already established portfolio of farming and rural events. William will be a key member to the team in achieving delivery.”
