I joined Caleb Roberts in August as Sales and Business Development Director after spending 6 years as Divisional Director at FarmWeb. A role that took me from the beaches of Cornwall to the Lochs of Inverness-shire and through some of the most fantastic countryside in the UK visiting Agricultural brokers. But this kept me away from home for most of the week. Moving to Caleb Roberts has meant I can now spend more time with my family and be involved in a thriving business, which has a passion for delivering a first class service to its customers, in one of the most picturesque parts of the country. My role will bring more focus to helping Caleb Roberts achieve organic growth in the agricultural sector, whilst looking at new areas of opportunity to venture into to widen our business portfolio.
I come from a background of farming and the motor industry with my mother’s side who are dairy farmers in Cheshire and long term customers of Caleb Roberts and my father running a motor dealership. Both these industries I find interesting and keen to stay close to.
I am married to Laura and have two boys, William who is nine and Patrick aged six, both are mad keen on any kind of sports. This has become our weekend past time, running the boys to football, cricket, swimming, Judo among other things. All the activities I’ve enjoyed up until this point have stopped which were running, cycling, shooting and golf, but hopefully most of these can be picked up again! I also run the mini’s section at Chester RUFC which allows me to continue my enjoyment for rugby whilst sharing this with our children.
Laura and I have a passion for spending money on our Victorian house and continue to find renovation projects to restore our home with its original features. Currently we are renovating the stained glass in our vestibule.
Up until recently we had a little border terrier called Ralph who sadly passed away at a grand old age of 14, but at the same time inherited Fred a family heirloom who is the most inquisitive 67 year old tortoise with some surprisingly quick feet for a wise old head!
