An agricultural company has announced the appointment of a new non-executive chair.

Tim Jones will become the non-executive chair of Carr’s Group after their AGM in February 2023, when Peter Page will get rid of the ‘executive chair’ role held since October 2021, and take up the role of CEO.

Since 2012, Tim has served as non-executive chair of Treatt PLC, a manufacturer of natural extracts and ingredients, and is also chair of Allia Charitable Group, a social impact financier.

In 2022, he was appointed as chair of SP-Logistics, a multi-national logistics company.

Tim said: "I am delighted to be joining Carr’s at this immensely exciting point in the company’s development.

“Both the speciality agriculture and engineering divisions are industry-leading businesses, and I very much look forward to helping guide the company, supporting long-term value creation for its shareholders and wider stakeholders.”

Peter Page, executive chair, added: “I am very pleased that Tim is joining the board of Carr’s as non-executive chair as we start a new phase in the company’s development, focusing on the substantial growth opportunities in speciality agriculture and engineering.

“I look forward to working with Tim and all members of the board to build shareholder value over the coming years.”

John Worby, senior independent director, said: "On behalf of the board, I am pleased to be welcoming someone of Tim’s extensive experience, which spans a range of industries and roles, and I am confident that Tim’s knowledge and guidance will be invaluable to Carr’s as we pursue our growth agenda.”
