Cogent announces a number of Senior level changes

The Board of Cogent Breeding Limited (Cogent) has announced a number of senior level changes effective from 1 March 2014.

Following a major strategic review, Andrew Turner, most recently President and CEO, India, Middle East and Africa Region at DeLaval , the leader in milk extraction and farm management for the dairy industry, will join as CEO. Mark Evington, MD of Cogent, who led the review, will continue as MD for the UK, supporting Andrew and the Board as a key member of the senior management team.

John Alvis has decided to step down as Chairman but has agreed to continue on the Board. John’s experience in the agricultural, dairy and food sectors is invaluable. Ian Hamilton, who joined the Board in early 2013, will succeed him as non-executive Chairman and, with Andrew, will lead the next phase of Cogent’s evolution.

Speaking about the changes, Graham Ramsbottom, CEO of Cogent’s parent company Wheatsheaf Group, said, “These changes herald an exciting new phase in Cogent’s development as a business and as part of Wheatsheaf. We welcome Andrew and Ian to their new roles and thank John and especially Mark for their very significant contributions and continuing commitment to Cogent.”cowsmoweb_cogent2014
